Obama to ignore Congress if Iran deal is rejected?
Democratic Congressman Brad Sherman (Calif) fears that if Congress rejects the Iranian nuclear sellout, President Hussein Obama will attempt to implement it anyway
The quotations from Sherman come from this article in the Hill:
Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.), who has been one of the
more skeptical Democrats on the agreement, said that Obama appeared
ready to ignore Congress, even if lawmakers vote to kill the deal and
then marshal the two-thirds majorities to override a White House veto.
“The main meat of what he said is, ‘If Congress overrides my veto,
you do not get a U.S. foreign policy that reflects that vote. What you
get is you pass this law and I, as president, will do everything
possible to go in the other direction,’” Sherman told reporters off the
House floor after the meeting.
“He’s with the deal — he’s not with Congress,” Sherman added. “At
least to the fullest extent allowed by law, and possibly beyond what’s
allowed by law.”
Sherman suggested that Obama could refuse to enforce the law and
could actively seek to undermine congressional action in other
countries, if Capitol Hill insists on stymieing the plan.
He always wanted to be a dictator. What could go wrong?
