Portman Among 47 Gop Senators To Sign Letter To Iran

WASHINGTON — In a move Democrats denounced as trying to sabotage the Obama administration’s foreign policy, Sen. Rob Portman and 46 other Senate Republicans yesterday warned Iran’s leadership that any agreement to limit Tehran’s apparent efforts to build a nuclear bomb would need Senate approval to stay in effect beyond 2016.

Senh: This is reprehensible behavior from the Republican party. Like Hillary Clinton said in her press conference, there are only two reasons why they would do this: 1) To aid Iran's efforts to obtain nuclear weapons, and 2) To sabotage Obama's negotiation with Iran.
