House votes to reject Iran nuclear deal, but action has little impact
Erin Kelly, USA TODAY, EDT September 11, 2015

WASHINGTON — The House voted Friday to reject the Iran nuclear
agreement, but the action will have little real impact now that Senate
Democrats have effectively safeguarded the deal.

House members voted 269-162 against approving the agreement. All but
one Republican voted against approval, as did 25 Democrats. The 162
members who voted for approval of the deal were all Democrats. Rep.
Thomas Massie, R-Ky., voted "present."

The House also voted 247-186 to prevent President Obama from lifting
economic sanctions against Iran.

However, both bills are expected to die in the House since they are
not slated to be taken up by the Senate.

In a big victory for Obama, Senate Democrats on Thursday blocked a
resolution to reject the Iran nuclear agreement. Senators voted 58-42
to bring a resolution of disapproval to the floor — two votes short of
the 60 needed to advance the resolution.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., plans to hold the vote
again Tuesday. But Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., predicted the
outcome will not change.

Rep. Sander Levin, D-Mich., the senior Democrat on the House Ways and
Means Committee, said it is clear that the agreement will take effect
on Sept. 17 and "it is time to move on."

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Republicans will keep trying
to stop the deal from being implemented. The House on Thursday passed
a resolution saying that Obama had not complied with a requirement to
provide Congress with all documents related to the Iran agreement.
Boehner said Republicans may use that argument to file a lawsuit to
try to halt the agreement.

"Never in our history has something with so many consequences to our
national security been rammed through with such little support,"
Boehner said on the House floor Friday. "Our effort to stop this bad
deal is just beginning. We will not let the American people down.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said the agreement
"strengthens our security."

The agreement — reached among Iran, the U.S., and five other nations —
would lift economic sanctions against Iran in return for Tehran’s
agreement not to develop nuclear weapons for at least a decade and to
dismantle some components of its nuclear program.

"As this agreement moves forward, we will be making progress for the
cause of peace in the world," Pelosi said.
