Meme Illustrates EXACTLY Why Mitch McConnell Needs to GO

USA Today reports that Harry Reid and Senate Democrats blocked the GOP effort to stop the Iran nuclear deal:
In a big victory for President Obama, Senate Democrats on Thursday blocked a resolution to reject the Iran nuclear agreement.
Senators voted 58-42 to bring to the floor a resolution disapproving the deal. That was two votes short of the 60 votes Republican leaders needed to advance the bill.
The Democrats’ action spares Obama from having to veto any legislation and leaves the Iran agreement intact, though Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he may bring the bill back for another vote next week.

Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Democratic Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., predicted that the outcome would not change if McConnell tries again.
“You can call (a vote) ten more times and you’ll get the same result,” Durbin said.
Under legislation passed by Congress in May, the deal will take effect unless both the House and Senate vote for a resolution of disapproval by Sept. 17.
House leaders began voting Thursday on a package of bills designed to stop the deal, but that legislation will die without Senate support. The House split from the Senate on strategy this week, deciding against voting on the disapproval resolution.
Instead, House leaders, bowing to pressure from conservative members, opted to take up legislation that they said could pave the way for possible litigation to stop the deal from being fully implemented.
The agreement, reached with the U.S. and five other world powers, would lift economic sanctions against Iran in exchange for Tehran agreeing not to develop nuclear weapons for at least a decade.
The House on Thursday voted 245-186 to approve a resolution saying that Obama had not complied with a requirement to provide Congress with all documents related to the Iran agreement. On Friday, the chamber will take up legislation to suspend until January 21, 2017 (when Obama leaves office) the ability of the president to lift economic sanctions. House members also will vote Friday on a resolution to approve the nuclear deal.

When Harry Reid ran the Senate he eliminated the filibuster so Democrats could run the chamber as he wished. McConnell reinstated the filibuster and gave the power to run the Senate right back to Harry Reid.
What was the point of the 2014 elections anyway?
No wonder Trump and Carson are killing it, no one trusts Republican politicians any more!
