Congressional Republicans who are trying to blow up U.S.-European diplomacy with Iran would desperately like Americans to believe that they have some alternative besides war to the administration's multilateral efforts to reach a diplomatic agreement with Iran.
The country is abuzz over the open letter 47 Republican Senators sent to Iranian leadership on Monday warning them that they will try to reverse any deal after Obama leaves office. President Obama accused the signers of making "common cause with the hard-liners in Iran", while Sen. Dick Durbin said Republicans should "think twice about whether their political stunt is worth the threat of another war in the Middle East." Major media outlets that just a few years ago rattled their rhetorical saber at Iran are now calling out Republicans for trying to derail the talks and push us toward war.
Democrats can no longer claim ignorance of Republican intentions. Any Democrat who supports legislation such as the Corker-Graham (S. 615) and Kirk-Menendez (S. 269) bills needs to know that such support is equivalent to supporting Republicans in undermining President Obama and killing the Iran deal. As Sen. Tom Cotton, the originator of the incendiary letter, told a Heritage Action event in January, "the end of these negotiations isn't an unintended consequence of congressional action. It is very much an intended consequence."
But Republicans can't kill the Iran deal without the help of Democrats. In order to secure a veto-proof majority on any of the bills before the Senate, Republicans need to recruit at least 13 Democratic supporters.
Call your Senators NOW at (202) 224-3121 and say
"I urge Sen. _________ to OPPOSE S. 269 and S. 615, which would have dangerous consequences for the ongoing negotiations with Iran. The letter 47 Republican Senators sent to Iranian leaders on Monday makes clear that Republicans do not intend for these bills to support diplomacy, but to kill it. Please don't help Republicans sabotage these talks and push us closer to war."

Senadores: Menéndez debe dimitir del liderazgo mientras enfrenta cargos
Los senadores –especialmente el líder de la minoría, Harry Reid– deberían instar al senador de Nueva Jersey, Robert Menéndez, a retirarse del liderazgo demócrata hasta que se resuelvan las acusaciones de corrupción en su contra.
El Departamento de Justicia está preparando presentar cargos de corrupción contra el senador de Nueva Jersey, Robert Menéndez, tras una investigación de 2 años basada en acusaciones por supuestamente haber aceptado regalos y vacaciones lujosas a cambio de favores políticos.  Este es un proceso por el que se ha esperado durante mucho tiempo. En 2013, Menéndez y el senador Mitch McConnell fueron considerados los dos senadores más corruptos por la organización Ciudadanos por la Responsabilidad y la Ética en Washington (CREW).

Bass, Karen (CA-37) — “My support for a strong U.S.-Israel relationship has been consistent during my entire time in elected office, and that support will only continue in the years to come. Support for Israel has traditionally been a non-partisan issue, and I want it to remain so,” she said. "Unfortunately, Speaker Boehner mishandled inviting Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress. Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech is now marred with controversy. Prime Minister Netanyahu has been provided with other options to talk with members of Congress, but he has turned them down to do the public speech. It is truly sad that Speaker Boehner and Prime Minister Netanyahu have chosen to play partisan and divisive politics.”
Blumenauer, Earl (OR-03): Wrote a Jan. 29 column in The Huffington Post explaining his decision, saying the Constitution “vests the responsibility for foreign affairs in the president.”
