Top Democrat, Republican on Foreign Relations Committee Strike Deal to Ensure Congressional Role in Iran Deal;
May Attract Veto-Proof Majorities

From Hot Air's headlines, this is big.

Obama has previously threatened to veto a bill that looks like this.

But it looks like there could very well be a supermajority to override his veto -- and when was the last time you remember such a thing happening?

The bill aims to thwart Obama if he attempts to impose his crooked deal with Iran on his own authority, suspending sanctions and the like. The bill would keep sanctions in place until Congress disposes of them.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker said Tuesday that negotiators had reached a bipartisan agreement on legislation allowing Congress to review a final nuclear deal with Iran.

"What I'm most proud of is we've kept the pure integrity of the process in place and the President cannot lift, while Congress is reviewing this, cannot lift the congressionally mandated sanctions, which is what they've been trying to do and push for over the past couple of weeks," Corker told reporters as he headed into a classified briefing on the emerging Iran agreement with Secretary of State john Kerry and other top administration officials."While Corker said that "no one should ever count their chickens before they hatch," he expressed optimism that when the bill comes up for a vote in the committee later Tuesday it would pass, as expected.


...

The bill also requires the President to make a series of detailed reports to Congress on a range of issues, including Iran's nuclear program, its ballistic missiles work, and its support for terrorism globally, particularly against the U.S. and its allies.
