The Senate passed their Iran nuclear bill. It sailed through, 98-1. Only Tom Cotton decided to be a cunt and stomp his feet because he didn’t get his amendments. Cotton has a right to be pissed off, in a way. Congress only has 30 days to approve or disapprove of the lifting of sanctions as part of a deal with the Iranians. But the bill is really as useful as a football bat. The deadline for a finalized deal is June 30, so they can review the deal all they want without jeopardizing the fragile framework already agreed to. Republicans can disapprove, but they will have to face a filibuster and a veto to get their way. The bill is sterile. Democrats and the president know this. I think deep down the Pubs know this too. At this point, it’s just grandstanding. It’s all a show and a sham, to make it look like they can contain the executive branch.
Our government is pathetic. My kids would behave better than this.
