Over the past few days, the headlines are screaming that BO has secured the needed Senate votes that will insure passage of his Iran deal. This is interesting since “Overall, 52% (of Americans polled) say Congress should reject the deal. This is just one more example of Washington politicians voting with their asses and not representing their constituents.
Has our democracy run aground? You bet it has. The biggest problem facing the American people now, is how much more damage to our system of government will occur before a new POTUS will be sworn in and starts to reverse the carnage of the last two presidential terms. I sure hope we can make it that far.
Take a good look at what is happening in the U.S. Congress. Those pledging their support of the Iran deal are 41 Democrats. One Senator is yet undecided and those who say they will vote against it are 58 Senators who are all Republicans and includes four Democrats. But that ain’t enough to override a Presidential Veto; that action will take 60 votes. Take a look for yourself (http://www.stopthebadirandeal.com/scorecard/).
