Former DCCC Chair Representative Steve Israel (D-NY) declared that Congress has a “constitutional responsibility” to vote on any Iran deal on Wednesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.
“If President Bush had proposed this deal, I would demand to the right to review it and vote on it. President Obama is proposing this deal, I reserve the right to read it and vote on it. It shouldn’t matter who the president is, Congress has a constitutional responsibility to weigh in on deals of this magnitude, and that’s exactly what we should do” he stated.
