Senate Votes Overwhelmingly 97-2 on Russia Sanctions

The Senate on Wednesday overwhelmingly approved a bipartisan package of new Russia sanctions that also lets Congress block President Donald Trump from easing or ending penalties against Moscow, the year's most significant GOP-imposed restriction on the White House.

The 97-2 vote on the Russia sanctions plan capped a week of talks that demonstrated cross-aisle collaboration that's become increasingly rare as Trump and the GOP push to repeal Obamacare without any Democratic votes. Senators merged the sanctions package with a bipartisan Iran sanctions bill that's on track for passage as soon as this week, complicating the politics of any future veto threat from the Trump administration.

That oil money isn't going to happen Donny boy. Better call your BFF Vladimir and break it to him gently.
Thanks from Camelot

Are they really that dim-witted to think that Trump can further their careers? Did they think the voters would appreciate their NO vote??

What exactly is so wrong with Russia. I mean I know that Putin is a strongman type and freedom is restricted for its people somewhat but hey, its not North Korea and its not China.

I really do not understand the total animosity that many express against Russia. Seems to me that we could indeed gain from warmed relations rather that what is going on now.

You boys. You and Jimgorn. Funny guys.

Obama is a commie. Obama is a Marxist. And Putin is actually a pretty good guy.

How much does the Kremlin pay the two of you?

Did you get sent to the Baghdad Bob school of communication?

Where did I say Putin was a good guy? I didn't. He is not. Most of the leaders around the world are not good guys. Many are far worse than Putin.

Whatever......

You guys do know that the Trump Administration had already previously stated that sanctions against Russia will not be lifted until Crimea is returned to Ukraine, right?
