In every year of the Obama Administration thus far, there has been one major news story that has mostly dominated all of the other news stories concerning the administration. In 2010, for example, it was the passage of the Affordable Care Act. In 2012, it was Benghazi. And for 2015, it’s undoubtedly the Iranian Nuclear Deal.
The Administration gained a victory Thursday for their Iranian Nuclear Deal, which has been their top priority for months; but it wasn’t a bipartisan victory.
Either way, the need for an Obama veto has likely been forestalled…or has it? For one thing, it’s not entirely clear if each of the Democrats who are for the Iranian Nuclear Deal will continue to support it through each of the procedures.
A few of these Democrats may end up turning against it because of the predominant concern that has been raised by the Republicans: that Iran may not stick to the restrictions it has agreed to. Even though the deal permits twenty four hour monitoring cameras and inspectors, those inspectors may be forced to wait for over twenty four days for access to facilities where surveillance isn’t spelled out in the agreement (Politifact).
Presidential candidate Rand Paul, who opposes the deal, has stated he does not believe it will pass, because it requires a massive leap of faith for the United States to trust Iran. As evidenced in this quote:
“The thing that bothers me and what I’m concerned about is whether or not we can have leverage to continue to have Iran comply. They have to show some initial steps, but the question is, will they consistently comply?” (Daily Signal)
Only time will tell obviously, but can we trust Iran? Do you believe that Senator Paul’s prediction about the Iranian Nuclear Deal will come true? We’d love to know what you think in the comments section below, and don’t forget to visit our Twitter and Facebook pages!
