House Democrats will play a key role in whether the Obama Administration can secure a deal with Iran. Under the Corker-Cardin compromise on the Corker’s Congressional review legislation, we only need a third of the Senate or a third of the House at a minimum to be willing to sustain a Presidential veto of Congressional legislation against the deal.
Illinois Democrat Jan Schakowsky is circulating a letter in support of the talks. But some House Democrats, like Florida Representative Alan Grayson, are attacking the talks by trying to introduce issues that are outside the scope of the talks and by setting an impossible standard for a “good deal.” That’s why it’s important that your Democratic Representative support the negotiations by signing the Schakowsky letter.
Call your Representative now at 1-202-224-3121 and say
