There are some, particularly in White House, who say that this bill could scuttle negotiations. But as Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), an original cosponsor of the legislation, said last week: “there is zero chance that Corker-Menendez passing will harm these negotiations.” The Senator is absolutely right. It is crucial that Congress, the direct representatives of the people, have a say in what will be perhaps the most important international agreement we have seen in decades. Without a review process, the discrepancies in the various ‘fact sheets’ on the deal’s framework could allow Iran to cheat the international community and continue on their pathway to a nuclear weapon.
Achieving bipartisan support for this initiative is paramount. President Obama has threatened to veto Corker-Menendez, meaning it a veto proof majority will be required for it to become law. Unfortunately, many supporters of this legislation are receiving heavy criticism for their support of this bill and some are beginning to waiver. If your Senator(s) are a cosponsor or supporter of this bill, it is especially important you call their office immediately and let them know you support their decision to stand by this bill. If not, please urge your Senators to support the bill.
