Harry Reid Blocks Iran Sanctions Vote

Jan 13, 2014 • By DANIEL HALPER

The Iran nuclear deal is in place. And Senate majority leader Harry Reid is preventing the Senate from voting on Iran sanctions to be implemented in case the Iran deal fails. Reid is holding up the vote at the urging of President Obama.300px-Harry_Reid_official_portrait2

The Emergency Committee for Israel is calling on Reid to allow a vote on the sanctions bill that’s supported by many Democrats and Republicans, and well over half of the Senate.

“Who says President Obama isn’t tough?” ECI asks in its statement.

“With today’s announcement of an implementation agreement with Iran, President Obama has shown a willingness to be tough in confronting the pro-Israel majority in Congress, threatening to veto any legislation that would punish Iranian deception or prevent the White House from acquiescing to a bad deal with Iran.
