Senate Approves Iran Nuclear Deal!
On Thursday September 10, 2015, the Senate voted to uphold the Iran nuclear deal by blocking a Republican effort to submit a bill to reject the deal.
Republicans needed 60 votes to move the bill forward, but they only got 58 votes because 40 Democrats and 2 independents voted No -- against "cloture" which ends debate and moves the bill to consideration by the Senate.
There will be no rejection by Congress and the deal will go into effect.
