    House Democrats block McCarthy measure supporting Iranian protesters

    House Democrats on Tuesday blocked a vote on a resolution introduced by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, California Republican, that expressed support of anti-government protesters in Iran and condemned Iran’s role in the downing of a Ukrainian civilian aircraft last week.

    By refusing to bring the resolution introduced Monday to a vote, Democrats effectively threw support to an otherwise isolated Iranian regime that in recent weeks has killed over 1,500 protesters and shot down a Ukrainian passenger plane.

    Yet to be seen is if the leaders in Iran will interpret blocking the resolution as tacit approval for a new crackdown on thousands of Iranian citizens already in the streets fighting for freedom and democracy in their country.

    Even in the murky waters of the DC swamp, this move is shockingly partisan. The House overwhelmingly voted 415-2 to support a similar resolution just two years ago. What's changed since then?
