Won’t it take 67 Senators to approve it?
“...Wont it take 67 Senators to approve it?”
I sure hope so. This America-hater needs to be defeated at every turn. And where are the voices of the Repubs in Washington??? Nutless bastards!
If the senate DOES approve it, and I wouldn’t be surprised, couldn’t a future president and congress tell the UN to stick it?
No. It takes "two thirds of Senators present" to ratify a treaty. It's been done by voice vote with no record of a quorum or a committee vote.
Worse, according to the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (a treaty on treaty law we never ratified), a treaty is effective on signature of any representative of the (UN) member governments, and has been so respected (illegally) by the United States for thirty years. This is why Bush rescinded Clinton's signature on the treaty governing the International Criminal Court.
Obama had no problem getting more than 2/3 of the senators for his START treaty that was a tragedy.
