United with Israel has taken the initiative to thank US Democratic lawmakers who have committed to stand with Israel and vote against the dangerous Iran deal.
While numerous Congressional delegates are currently on the fence or voting for the Iran nuclear deal, below is a list of several Democrats who understand why this is a bad deal that must be rejected.
We were thrilled to hear that Senator Chuck Schumer has joined the list and are hopeful that he will take a leading role in convincing more Democratic lawmakers to vote down the deal.
Since Republicans hold a commanding 246 seats in the House of Representatives, it is widely expected that they will come up with 218 votes to support a resolution of disapproval, which was introduced by Republican Congressman Peter Roskam.
“Time is not the friend of this deal,” Roskam said in a statement. “The more time members spend evaluating this agreement, the more they realize it’s a historic mistake.”
It’s unclear, however, if there will be enough votes to override President Barack Obama’s expected veto of the legislation. The president is counting on fellow Democrats to sustain his veto, and House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi has said that they will.
Obama would need 34 members of the Senate or 146 members of the House to stand with him.
Please help us thank the following Representatives for their support and for making the right moral decision.
Thank them for making the right decision!
Senator Chuck Schumer
