Up-or-Down Vote

Up-or-Down Vote

US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday urged Democrats not to filibuster voting on a resolution to disapprove the Iran nuclear agreement, the Hill reported.
“I expect that every senator who voted for [the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act] is now entitled to an up-or-down vote. Not a filibuster or artificial limits on passage, but an important vote on this resolution,” he said. “The senate should not hide behind procedural obfuscation to shield the president or our individual views.”
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid over the weekend offered to allow the senate to go directly to a vote on final passage, skipping procedural votes, but only if McConnell agreed to a 60-vote threshold for passage.
