(Worthy News) - President Barack Obama has 'a great likelihood of success' in his showdown with congressional Republicans on the Iran nuclear deal, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell grudgingly acknowledged on Monday, the Times of Israel reported.

The GOP-led Senate and House are expected to turn down the deal next month, with the Kentucky Republican calling it flawed and House Speaker John Boehner criticizing the accord. The deal with Tehran and world powers would curb Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for relief from economic sanctions.

Obama has pledged to veto a congressional resolution of disapproval. The question then becomes whether opponents of the accord can muster the votes to override the president. [ Source ]

  1. They will not block Obama and we will be in great danger as will Israel. I guess they do not care if the U.S. gets blown away. I hope they realize that they are signing the death warrants for themselves and their families as well as the rest of us. Israel will survive because that is God's promise. God will let us be destroyed because our president has proven that he is an enemy of Israel. That is also God's promise.
