When a key congressional Senate Democrat announced his opposition to the Iran deal White House hopes to use a veto suffered a major setback. The announcement by Sen. Ben Cardin from Maryland, who is a top candidate on the Foreign Policy Committee, said that the deal actually legitimizes Iran’s nuclear program unlike what people assert it to be.
More is still pilling up even with that support. The latest developments show that the congressional backers of the Iran nuclear deal aim for more ambitious deal. They want commitments bottled up disapproval of the bill with filibuster. This means that they are even preventing it from coming to final vote.
“This is a close call, but after a lengthy review, I will vote to disapprove the deal,” Cabin said. As at now President Obama’s goal seems achievable but will need much struggle. Democratic leader of the Senate Harry Reid has weighed in as well. He has offered to avoid the debate being truncated by filibuster. The move is aimed assuaging Democrats who are not all in with being accused of delaying the measure.
