For the FIRST TIME ever, Congress overrode an Obama veto!
On Wednesday the senate voted to override Obama’s veto of a bill allowing 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia.
Why is Obama protecting a country that funded the 9/11 attacks, abuses women and executes gays?
From Huffington Post:
It’s the first time a chamber of Congress has had the votes to overrule Obama on a veto. It’s also the result of some unusual alliances: Sen. Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), who is on track to become the next Democratic leader, led the effort against the president alongside Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), a conservative member of Republican leadership.
“This is pretty much close to a miraculous occurrence,” Cornyn said before the vote. “All of us have come together and agreed this is the appropriate and right thing to do.” It takes two-thirds of the Senate to override a veto. Party leaders got well above that level. The legislation now heads to the House, where lawmakers are expected to have the votes to override the veto, too.
