WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican-led House has gone on record against the Iran nuclear deal, but the symbolic vote will not stop President Barack Obama from implementing the agreement.

After three hours of hot-tempered debate, the House voted 269 to 162 on Friday to reject the deal.

Senate Democrats voted on Thursday to uphold the accord with Iran, overcoming heavy GOP opposition to hand Obama a victory on his top foreign policy priority.

The Senate action guaranteed that any legislation disapproving the pact will never reach Obama’s desk.
