Mass Democrats: Iran, Cuba, Syria, North Korea

The Democrats in the Massachusetts State House were pushing a bill to require the state's pension fund to divest from companies doing business with Sudan.

House Republicans, led by Brad Jones, agreed and asked "why stop there?"

The GOP moved to add Iran, Cuba, Syria, and North Korea to the list but Democrats refused to move along with this amendment.

The GOP then withdrew Cuba, Syria, and North Korea and pursued only with Iran.

The Democrats response: No.

Brad Jones said "There's probably been more debate in Iran today than in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It's a disgrace, a disgrace,"
