Barbara Mikulski completes the betrayal of America (and Israel)
Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-Md), who will never have to face the consequences of her vote, announced on Wednesday that she will vote for the Obama-Kerry sellout to a nuclear Iran. Her vote gives President Hussein Obama 34 votes
- enough to sustain a veto if the sellout ever comes to a vote at all
. This is from the first link.
Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski
announced Wednesday she’s supporting the international agreement with
Iran regarding its nuclear capabilities. In doing so, the Maryland
Democrat gives the Obama administration a veto override-proof list of 34
Senate supporters, all from the Democratic caucus.
“No deal is perfect, especially one negotiated with the Iranian
regime,” Mikulski wrote in a statement Wednesday. “I have concluded that
this Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is the best option available to
block Iran from having a nuclear bomb. For these reasons, I will vote
in favor of this deal. However, Congress must also reaffirm our
commitment to the safety and security of Israel.”
The announcement from the Appropriations ranking member came as the
top Democrat on Foreign Relations, her colleague on “Team Maryland” Benjamin L. Cardin continued to weigh his options. Cardin met Tuesday with college students at Johns Hopkins University.
Regardless what Cardin decides, it is a big victory for the Obama
administration to get the necessary votes locked up before Labor Day
weekend, and it is made all the more significant because Republicans and
outside groups opposed to the agreement have been beating the drum
against it, including on the airwaves. Opponents led by Trump and Cruz
are set to gather outside the Capitol one week from today to warn of
Mikulski joined the list of supporters one day after two Democratic
senators who had been seen as having among the most significant concerns
made detailed presentations to explain their support.
Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania wrote a 17-page memo to explain his analysis, and Sen. Chris Coons
of Delaware, who has already developed into a key voice at the Foreign
Relations Committee, gave a speech at the University of Delaware and
spoke to reporters about his decision.
For Senate Democrats, party loyalty takes precedence over all other considerations. When will they pay the price?
