While Cruz shows the way, McConnell leads astray...and now the Iran nuke deal stands, thanks to GOP 'leadership'

"This deal IS war." ~ Mark Levin
While Cruz pushed McConnell and Boehner today to first delay the Iran nuclear deal vote, preventing Obama from lifting sanctions, and secondarily, treat the deal as a treaty in order to defeat it...
TheHill: Cruz sent a letter to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday suggesting they could show “tremendous leadership” by delaying the Iran vote.

He argues they should tell the White House that the 60-day clock on congressional consideration of the deal has yet to start because the administration has not sent Congress the text of side deals between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

“If we hold the [Iran] vote, and no Democrats switch their votes, we will lose,” Cruz wrote. “We don’t have to lose.”

“Both of you should formally determine that, under the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, also known as Corker-Cardin… [that] the 60-day clock for congressional review has not yet begun to run. And, critically, as a result, federal law prohibits the Obama Administration from lifting sanctions,” he said.

Cruz also wants the Republican leaders to introduce a resolution stating that the Iran deal doesn’t have enough support to be passed as a treaty, which has a higher vote threshold, and to warn banks that if they release money to Iran as sanctions are lifted “they risk billions in civil (and possibly even criminal) liability once President Obama leaves office.” “In my judgment, this approach is the one way we have to actually stop the deal,” he added in the letter.

...McConnell forced a cloture vote, allowing the Democrats to filibuster the disapproval, and now the Iran Deal stands as is...
TRS: Ted Cruz said we don’t have to lose and he was right. McConnell didn’t like the moves he was seeing in the House and made sure to end it. So now it’s over.

So you can thank these two for giving nukes to Iran, endangering every Israeli, and sending future American generations to war over this. They will have blood on their hands, smearing it throughout either party, as they've once again disregarded the will of the American people...but this time, with a Republican Congress at the helm.

ADDENDUM: via Levin...
On Thursday’s Mark Levin Show: Our nation is more in peril today than it was yesterday and we can thank Sen. Mitch McConnell. The Senate has refused to take a vote on President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal and now it’s gone through. There’s no doubt McConnell cut a deal with Obama to pass his Iran agreement this way: he moved at breakneck speed to get it through the Senate. The objectives of politicians in Washington are not the objectives of the American people. The GOP establishment abuses its base time after time, and they’re too stupid to realize that we despise them. They don’t care about national security or upholding the Constitution, only about lining their pockets with money from lobbyists and special interest groups. Obama calls this a historic step forward to enabling the U.S to work with an international partner, saying it’s a victory for diplomacy and national security. Giving Iran access to nuclear warheads isn’t a victory for national security; it seals our fate and sows the seeds of war.

...and Rush on Friday, "There's no question whatsoever there's money involved."

Although Rush puts the onus on Obama in this particular piece, I'm certain he'd agree that this monetary involvement is spread throughout Washington on both sides of the aisle.
