When just about every single member of the U.S. House of Representatives comes together to vote in favor or against a bill, the action is nothing less than miraculous.

Members of the House put aside their political differences and agreed that extending the existing sanctions against the Islamist state of Iran was in the best interest of the of national security.

By a vote of 419-1, the House passed  the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA), a bill (H.R.6297) that extended the sanctions for another 10 years.

“Instead of reigning in Iran’s destructive actions, the Administration’s nuclear deal has emboldened Iranian leadership as they continue to march toward a nuclear capability...Iran, infused with billions in fresh cash from the nuclear deal, continues to fund terrorism throughout the Middle East. They continue to test and develop intercontinental ballistic missiles in violation of international agreements. And they continue to declare their ambitions to see the destruction of Israel.”

“Today’s legislation extends the tools at our disposal to prevent Iran’s acquisition of weapons and ballistic missiles and sends a strong message that the House is serious about holding Iran to its international obligations.”-Rep. Martha McSally (R)

While the White House has deemed ISA as unnecessary, members disagreed with the President and believed that a fall back plan is needed to counter any violations of the obligations the Iranian government agreed on in the nuclear deal.
