It's a frightening irony. This September 11th, we will mourn 3,000 innocent lives snuffed out during the worst terrorist attack on our homeland. And at the very same time, our President and a minority of Congress is ramming through a catastrophic deal that will provide hundreds of billions of dollars and a path to nuclear weapons to the very same Iranian regime that planned and facilitated the horror perpetrated on our soil on September 11, 2001. Instead of learning from our recent painful history, we are about to enter into a disastrous deal that assures that we will suffer more 9-11s.
...Senator Mitch McConnell, majority leader, said yesterday that he will force the exact same vote in the Senate next week before the Sept. 17th deadline!
...Yesterday, 42 senators, including Senators Gillibrand (D-NY), Booker (D-NJ), Blumenthal (D-CT), and Casey (D-CT) who collectively represent the largest Jewish constituency in the U.S., made the decision to support an agreement that will release $50 billion in cash to an Iranian regime that is actively engaged in terrorism, has four Americans imprisoned on baseless charges, and is committed to annihilating Israel and fomenting hatred of the United States.
Senators Gillibrand (D-NY), Booker (D-NJ), Blumenthal (D-CT), Casey (D-PA) and 38 of their Democratic colleagues effectively BLOCKED the resolution to reject the Iran agreement. The votes of the 58 Senators' votes who boldly stated their opposition to this dangerous agreement with Iran were two short of the 60 votes needed to break the filibuster of the 42 Obama loyalists who support the Iran agreement.
TELL THESE SENATORS THIS URGENT MESSAGE:
IT IS TIME TO SHOW STATESMANSHIP AND ALLOW THE VOTE ON THE RESOLUTION OF DISAPPROVAL TO PROCEED; AND
IT IS CRITICAL THAT THEY FIND THE COURAGE TO REPRESENT THEIR CONSTITUENTS AND VOTE TO REJECT THIS DISASTROUS AGREEMENT WITH IRAN.
SENATOR GILLIBRAND (NY): 202-224-4451
SENATOR BOOKER (NJ): 202-224-3224
SENATOR BLUMENTHAL (CT): 202-224-2823
SENATOR CASEY (PA): 202-224-6324
