Obama can do Iran Nuclear Deal even if Congress Disapproves

U.S. President Barack Obama

(Worthy News) - The September vote on the Iran nuclear deal is billed as a titanic standoff between President Barack Obama and Congress. Yet even if lawmakers reject the agreement, it's not game-over for the White House.

A congressional vote of disapproval would not prevent Obama from acting on his own to start putting the accord in place. While he probably would take some heavy criticism, this course would let him add the foreign policy breakthrough to his second-term list of accomplishments.

Obama doesn't need a congressional OK to give Iran most of the billions of dollars in relief from economic sanctions that it would get under the agreement, as long as Tehran honors its commitments to curb its nuclear program — at least for now.

"A resolution to disapprove the Iran agreement may have substantial political reverberations, but limited practical impact," says Robert Satloff, executive director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. "It would not override President Obama's authority to enter into the agreement." [ Source ]

  1. Why in the world have you people not put a stop to this man?? Don't claim you can't, because y'all up there do just what you want to do, which is mainly accuse and investigate! No fed operative EVER gets the same treatment we out here would get! They never go to jail. If they are fined, they just use the democrat slush fund (taxes) to pay it off. Then they end up in a better job than the one they had!! You want to know why America is FED UP?? This is just one of the reasons!!

  2. I have never witnessed a president of a country so set on crushing his own people...spearheading a deal that puts Americans and peaceful minded people in peril. Why would you negotiate with those who blatantly strive for our demise. Maybe we are not his people!

  3. The Lord is ultimately Sovereign even over Obama and Iran. May the Lord have mercy on the world in the days to come, amen.
