WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Roger Williams (R-Texas) this afternoon voted against H.R.3461: To Approve the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, signed at Vienna on July 14, 2015, relating to the nuclear program of Iran.
“I challenge all of my democrat colleagues who support this deal to come to the floor and look into the camera; so when history comes full circle the American people will know who in this body let our Neville Chamberlain give Iran the bomb.”
WASHINGTON (September 10, 2015) The Iran nuclear deal survived a key vote Thursday in the U.S. Senate, in a victory for President Barack Obama.
Democrats held together to block a resolution of disapproval against the deal.
The vote was 58-42 in favor of proceeding, but 60 votes were needed for the resolution to advance to a final vote.
The outcome means the disapproval resolution will not reach Mr. Obama's desk, and the nuclear deal will move forward unchecked by Congress.

“We do not support arming all military personnel for a variety of reasons,” Navy Capt.
