S.Amdt.2640 to H.J.Res.61

Note: H.J.Res.61 'Hire More Heroes Act of 2015' is the measure "expected to be the vehicle in the Senate for congressional disapproval of the Iran nuclear agreement."

Cloture motion on amendment SA 2640 presented in Senate. (09/10/2015)

S.Amdt. 2640 (Sen. McConnell): Of a perfecting nature.
- Amendment pending in Senate.
- Cloture on amendment SA 2640 not invoked in Senate by Yea-Nay Vote. 58 - 42. Record Vote Number: 264

In other words, the GOP did not have the 60 votes necessary to pass a cloture resolution required to bring the measure of disapproval of the Iran deal to a vote. The measure of disapproval, therefore, could not proceed.

Here is a list of Senators whose names will go down in infamy. Here are the men and women who supported the Iran deal that will result in an Iranian nuclear weapon, put billions into the hands of the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism, and reward a regime currently and cruelly holding Americans. Here are the men and women who chose party politics and support of a Democratic President today over the catastrophic future the Iran deal guarantees for our country and our ally Israel tomorrow.
