Many Americans have been hearing about the pending deal with Iran. Of the terms shared, it doesn’t look like a very good deal for the US, but a very good deal for Iran.
Now comes word that regardless of what the American people think, or whether Congress approves the deal, President Obama is planning on pushing the deal through regardless of US law. According to The Blaze:
The Hill reported Wednesday that Sherman said Obama appeared ready to ignore Congress if members don’t sign off on the deal. The comments came after the president invited top Democrats to the White House to give them a personal presentation on the Iran deal.
“The main meat of what he said is, ‘If Congress overrides my veto, you do not get a U.S. foreign policy that reflects that vote. What you get is you pass this law and I, as president, will do everything possible to go in the other direction,’” Sherman said, according to The Hill.
“He’s with the deal — he’s not with Congress,” the California congressman added. “At least to the fullest extent allowed by law, and possibly beyond what’s allowed by law.”
Again, we see this President more interested in pushing through his beliefs rather than carry out the wishes of the American people. And if Congress or the law get in his way, he’ll just go beyond them.
What do you think? Should the President push through what he believes in regardless of the law, and Congress? Or should he look to work with Congress? Leave a comment with your thoughts below.
