The editorial states the Iran Nuclear Negotiations Act of 2014 [link 7] sends a message to Iran �that Congress won�t sign off on a bad agreement that puts America�s interests at risk and is ready to double down on sanctions.� �The Administration is currently leaning on Democrats in the Senate to block an attempt by Republicans to give Congress a say on any Iran accord. In late July, Bob Corker, Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio and John McCain �the GOP�s strongest voices on foreign policy�introduced the �Iran Nuclear Negotiations Act of 2014.� The bill compels the Administration to submit any agreement for Senate review within three days of completion. If Iran walks away from the table without a deal, the sanctions waived last November would be immediately reimposed. The bill also puts in place a quick mechanism to reimpose sanctions in case Iran cheats on a deal. Both provisions are sensible safeguards,� the editorial states.
