WASHINGTON (Reuters) — The White House on Friday expressed confidence that it has the support in Congress necessary to sustain a veto of a resolution to reject the Iran nuclear agreement.

“We’ve got some momentum built up on our side,” said White House spokesman Josh Earnest at a briefing, referring to the 30 Senators who have publicly announced support for the deal.

Deal supporters need 34 of the 100 senators or 146 members of the 435-seat House to sustain a veto.

    Filibuster it. Congress has no business sticking it’s nose into Foreign Policy negotiations, and this is not a treaty.

    Barak is using the same arguments that Clinton did with his N Korean nuclear deal and we all know how that turned out

      That is a nice comment, no bomb till 2006, but look what happened after Clinton. Look at the great results the Bush administration had in their negotiations with North Korea. North Korea’s first bomb test was in 2006 long after Clinton left office.
