In the previous days the Iranian Nuclear deal made huge noise on international platforms and USA and Iran stretched this deal long enough but after many months and big efforts form the Obama government the deal was finally secured.
Now after all this drama the Senator Chuck Schumer who is the most powerful Jewish voice in Congress, said last Thursday night that he openly opposes President Obama’s deal to limit Iran’s nuclear program.
This doesn’t seem right that to oppose such a deal on which you work hard for many months and when the future of two nations are on the line. Supporters on both sides have solid cases of their point of view that cannot simply be terminated.
This has made assessing the contract a difficult and cautious attempt. According to the senator, after profound study, cautious thought and significant soul-searching he has decided to oppose the agreement and is going to vote yes on a motion of disapproval.
Media is saying that Mr. Schumer had consumed quite a few weeks carrying a damaged copy of the contract in his briefcase and is continuously meeting with Mr. Obama and bureaucrats like Wendy R. Sherman.
Now for other Democrats who are also against the contract have the option to join Republicans for the change. The best part is one source reveals that Schumer was supposed to hold off making his disagreement in public unless there are sufficient votes of the Republicans for an override.
Another source aware of Schumer’s decision told that the senator informed the White House today of his motive to oppose the deal. He intentionally planned to make his decision public on Friday.
This comes as a big surprise to the commission that was handling the deal including Mr. Obama. Now Schumer’s preferences on the deal had been carefully watched because the strategy to release authorizations on Tehran in interchange for right to use to possible nuclear sites was proclaimed in early July.
Everybody knows Schumer holds a key vote both for his reputation for the top Jewish Democrat in Congress and the hope that he’ll turn out to be the Democratic leader in the Senate when Minority Leader Harry Reid steps down at the end of his tenure in 2016.
Senator Schumer believes in his decision and he is hoping that with matters of principles and great importance like this each member eventually comes to their own decision.
