Which 25 War-Mongering House Democrats Just Voted against the Iran Deal?

Yesterday, the House took a party line vote accusing Obama of withholding documents related to the deal with Iran, and 42 Senate Democrats succeeded at blocking a disapproval resolution. Ben Cardin (D-MD), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Bob Menendez (D-NJ), and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) voted with the GOP, and should be shamed accordingly.

Today, the House rejected a resolution approving the deal with Iran 269 to 162, with one abstention. The abstention was from Republican Tom Massie (KY-04).

All other Republicans voted against the approval resolution. They were joined by the following war-mongering Democrats:

Brad Ashford (NE-02)
Brendan Boyle (PA-13)
Tony Cárdenas (CA-29)
Ted Deutch (FL-21)
Eliot Engel (NY-16)
Lois Frankel (FL-22)
Gwen Graham (FL-02)
Gene Green (TX-29)
Alcee Hastings (FL-20)
Steve Israel (NY-03)
Ted Lieu (CA-33)
Dan Lipinski (IL-03)
Nita Lowey (NY-17)
Carolyn Maloney (NY-12)
Grace Meng (NY-06)
Grace Napolitano (CA-32)
Donald Norcross (NJ-01)
Collin Peterson (MN-07)
Kathleen Rice (NY-04)  
David Scott (GA-13)
Brad Sherman (CA-30)
Kyrsten Sinema (AZ-09)
Albio Sires (NJ-08)
Juan Vargas (CA-51)
Filemon Vela (TX-34)

After that, the House cast a vote to prevent Obama from suspending sanctions on Iran. It passed on a mostly party line vote of 247 to 186.

Two Democrats joined the GOP here: Gwen Graham (FL-02) and Juan Vargas (CA-51). Graham will likely be redistricted out of her seat, and, frankly, I'd say, "Don't let the door hit you on the way out."

If you are represented by any of the 4 Democratic senators or 25 Democratic representatives who voted against the deal, they deserve to hear from you, and they should face consequences for their vote.

But regardless of the efforts of this group war-mongering Democrats and their Republican allies, the deal survives, a win for diplomacy.
