Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid took a massive step today and played an important role by backing up the Iran nuclear contract this Sunday. This action secures the votes required to close the deal on nuclear agreement. The senator plays an important role at a very crucial time when all the effort of months on a particular deal can be ruined. At this occasion Harry M. Reid provided a forceful validation to the nuclear deal with Iran which gave an important lift that delivers continued momentum for stopping Congress from blocking President Obama’s agreement.
In a press release the senator said: “I intensely back this historic contract and will do all in my power to guarantee that it stands and go according to plan.” With this action of Reid’s support ease the way for President Obama to defend the agreement as within past few days over the loud protests was made by the congress.
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Republican-led Congress are putting a lot of stress on Obama to handle it delicately.
In this battle between the Government and opposition Reid consider that he was still confident that at slightest 41 Democrats would back Obama and that could be sufficient which would choke the resolution in a filibuster and not need a presidential veto.
He disallowed the declarations from Schumer and other selective and loyal supporters of Israel that the contract does not promise global investigators sufficient access to places where Iran has worked on nuclear development.
New York Senator Charles Schumer was the first democrat to go against the deal. His major concern was Iran after all this drama would still be able to make a nuclear bomb in a decade and the $50 billion in agreements relief would be directed into terrorism.
As the Senate deferred closely three weeks ago and at that time more than 15 Democrats have proclaimed their support containing a few in conservative-leaning states that appeared to have been possible targets to go against Obama.
At the end of the day there is no hesitation in saying that the danger of Iran attaining a nuclear weapon is hanging on our head and the one result we all approve is intolerable if Congress discards this agreement.
The senator declined to deliberate any private talks or discussions with his colleagues while promising to coax Democrats to back the president on the Iran vote. We just only hope for the best.
