GOP senator, at White House's request, blocks Armenian genocide resolution

Source: NBC News

It was the third time the resolution, which passed the House with overwhelming bipartisan support, was blocked by a Republican senator.

A Republican lawmaker blocked a resolution recognizing the Armenian genocide from being passed by unanimous consent in the Senate on Thursday the third time a GOP senator has done so since the House passed the legislation by a 405-to-11 vote.

The resolution "acknowledges the horrific atrocity that was the Armenian genocide, the systematic slaughter of 1.5 million Armenians that for far too long has been covered up, has been hidden, and U.S. policy has not acknowledged," Cruz said.

Cruz's Democratic co-author on the resolution, Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, said he was "deeply disappointed" by Cramer's objection and noted that Cramer had co-sponsored similar legislation on the genocide in the past.

3. How despicable must you be when a member of your own repuke cabal calls you out?

Cruz (THAT one) calls out Kevin Cramer of North Dakota.

Let's follow the $$$$$ here too.

6. That is one of two rule changes that need to happen once we retake the Senate

1. Make it to where BOTH majority leader AND minority leader have to sign off on keeping legislation from moving forward. No more legislative Grim Reapers like McTurtle.

2. Eliminate the ability of a Senator to sit on a bill.

Both can be changed with a simple majority.
