President Obama has votes to filibuster opposition to Iran deal

Posted By on Tue, Sep 8, 2015 at 10:52 AM

Democrats in the Senate say they have the 41 votes necessary to filibuster a Republican effort to have a vote on nuclear agreement with Iran.

The angry response from Sen. Tom Cotton should arrive any minute now. Just remember, when he says important issues deserve an up or down vote, ask him if that applies to judicial nominations, too.
