The headline on the Investor’s Business Daily editorial headline says these senators have blood on their hands. These are the ones who say they will vote to sustain an Obama veto and thus uphold his Iranian nuke deal that assures the rogue nation will acquire nuclear weapons in a few years or less.
Never mind that the Constitution requires two-thirds of senators to approve a treaty. Congress has conceded it is not a treaty, but merely and executive agreement.
If that weren’t bad enough Harry Reid is consorting with the White House in an effort to filibuster any bill opposing the non-treaty treaty, so no one will have to on the record.
Why should SALT II and the ABM Treaty be treaties and not a nuclear accord with a terrorist state? According to a telling answer from Kerry in congressional testimony, it’s “because you can’t pass a treaty anymore.”
In other words, when the Constitution becomes a problem you just dispense with it.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner should have demanded that this be presented to Congress as a treaty that would have required a two-thirds vote of senators to pass.
So Republicans, in their passivity, may have blood on their hands too.
