Senate finally passes Iran nuclear review bill

The process of the Iran nuclear review bill has been up, down, left, and right. However, the Senate passed the bill, which gives Congress some  review power over a nuclear deal reached with Iran, with a 98–1 vote.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is a veto-proof majority. The bill will move to the House, and a confident John Boehner is looking forward to it.

The House is expected to take up the Senate measure as early as next week. “I look forward to House passage of this bill to hold President Obama’s administration accountable,” Speaker Boehner said in a statement.

We are looking forward to it too. This bill has been bouncing around for a month, and it’s getting exhausting to cover.
