Republicans Plan New Sanctions For Iran

Let’s see if that holds up:

“Republicans in Congress are preparing several bills to sanction Iran. Even if those never reach a vote, the proposals could be problematic for Democrats well into 2016,” Rogin notes.

The Iran deal will likely fail on a first vote, but opponents may struggle to override President Barack Obama’s threatened veto. Much of the deal will take effect with or without Congress’s approval, since the Obama administration took the deal to the United Nations Security Council for approval first.

    If Iran’s opponents go public with complaints about the Iran lobby, the sanctions might hold up.

    • I am not confident of any Western action other than anything Israel could do.
