Senate Overwhelmingly Passes Arms Control Treaty

Posted By on Wed, Dec 22, 2010 at 2:10 PM

The early Christmas gifts just keep coming from the Obama administration. The U.S. Senate gave its approval Wednesday to a new arms control treaty with Russia.

Idaho Sens. Mike Crapo and Jim Risch were two of 26 Republicans voting against the New Start Treaty. But 13 of their GOP brethren joined every Democrat to total 71 "yes" votes. The treaty now heads to the president for his signature, and marks the most tangible foreign policy achievement of the Obama administration to date.
