McConnell on New Iran Sanctions: Reid Running Senate Like a 'Dictator'
Six top Senate Democrats have broken ranks with President Obama to move forward with new proposed sanctions against Iran.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell joined The Real Story this afternoon to react, saying this signals “widespread bipartisan dissatisfaction with where we are in the Iran negotiations.” According to McConnell, the administration put the hold on existing sanctions, giving the Iranians relief in return for nothing.
Despite bipartisan support for the sanctions, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is preventing fellow senators from voting on this bill. “He’s completely taken over the Senate and running it as if he were a dictator,” McConnell said.
