Graham: Senate Will Challenge White House on Iran Deal

Graham: Senate Will Challenge White House on Iran Deal


Monday, 25 Nov 2013 01:31 PM

By Audrey Hudson


Sen. Lindsey Graham said Monday that despite the Obama administration's interim deal with Iran the Senate would pass a bipartisan measure forcing sanctions against the rogue nation until its nuclear capability has been completely dismantled.

According to The Washington Free Beacon, the South Carolina Republican said on CNN's "New Day" that sanctions will come out of Congress in the next couple of weeks to ensure Iran dismantles its reactor rather than suspends construction as the deal requires.

"You stop enrichment, not just pause it," Graham said.

"Right now, the interim deal leaves their capability totally intact. The new round of sanctions will be focusing on the end game, and it is coming soon," Graham said.

Graham is the latest in a growing line of Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill who oppose the deal with Iran, which requires the country to curtail its nuclear program in exchange for billions of dollars in aid that would flow without sanctions.

The Obama administration has warned Congress not to move ahead with sanctions, but Graham's statement is the strongest yet that lawmakers are not willing to let the White House deal stand.

"This deal doesn't represent the fact that we are dealing with some of the most thuggish people in the world," Graham said.

Payton Manning was going against the wind in last night's overtime loss to the Evil Empire.

4. Why can't these fuckers just chill...

I don't think that's asking too much. We've come to accept they aren't going to do anything productive, so just sit the fuck down & don't speak, don't do shit.

14. When they chill, demographics overtake them more rapidly.

Holding their ground means playing the victim or the cowboy 24/7.

5. And if Graham's dumbass moves woulda worked, they woulda worked before.

Something is in the process of being addressed with the intent of it becoming a whole solution, so yeah, go break it.

6. Foreign policy is the responsibility of the executive, not the legislature

separation of powers, anyone? Coming from a representative of a party that claims to care about the Constitution, this is pretty ironic.
