Democrats Block Vote on Measure to Support Iranian Protesters

Republicans are shocked and outraged after their Democratic colleagues voted to block House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s resolution to condemn the Iranian government and support the Iranian protesters who are boldly demonstrating against the oppressive regime.

Leader McCarthy's resolution does the following: 1) condemns Iran for killing over 1,000 Iranian citizens who were protesting their government, 2) condemns the Government of Iran for shooting down Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, 3) condemns the Government of Iran for repeatedly lying to its people and to the world about its responsibility for the downing of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, 4) calls on the Government of Iran to refrain from the use of violence, and protect the rights of freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, the leader's office explains.

Tensions between the U.S. and Iran have been sky high in the past few weeks. Iranian terror leader Qassem Soleimani helped orchestrate attacks on coalition bases in Iraq that killed a U.S. contractor and injured several others, and helped plan the attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. After Trump ordered the airstrike that killed Soleimani, Iran retaliated by striking more bases. It also admitted that it "unintentionally" shot down the Ukrainian plane with a missile. The Trump administration announced new severe economic sanctions against Iran last week.

"The Iranian people - and the whole world - need to know that America stands with those who stand for freedom, and it’s pathetic that Democrats have refused to lend their support," said Mark Bednar, McCarthy's Strategic Communications Director.

In the meantime, days after the House voted to curb President Trump's power in Iran, the Senate appears poised to do the same.
