    The reputation of the US takes a **** kicking then does it not for future issues such as this?
    No, not unilaterally. \

    Congress must "advise and consent" to any treaties.

    The reputation of the US is already taking a **** kicking for no less than he's playing with this dangerous distraction while losing a war

    Oh, and just like the North Koreans. Iran is not discussing anything concerning their Military programs and ballistics.
    I missed where it was/is a Presidential power?
    That deal was doomed from the beginning though.

    It is not a Treaty though.

    Washington (CNN)A key Senate Democrat is throwing his weight behind a proposal that would allow Congress to reject the Iran nuclear deal, complicating President Barack Obama's efforts to dodge Republican opposition and lock in the pact on his own.

    New York Sen. Chuck Schumer said Monday that he is backing legislation introduced by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) to give Congress the ability to halt the implementation of the deal once the United States and five other world powers finalize the details in the coming months.

    "This is a very serious issue that deserves careful consideration, and I expect to have a classified briefing in the near future. I strongly believe Congress should have the right to disapprove any agreement and I support the Corker bill which would allow that to occur," Schumer told Politico on Monday.

    I am no fan of Chuckles Schumer. However he is right on this one. Any agreement that our government has made in the past with any nation, especially an enemy, has always been considered in effect, a treaty, and the president always knew that for it to stick, he would have to get it past congress. One man should not get to decide what's best for every American...making agreements with other nations, immigration, mass amnesty, etc. We go to the polls to elect senators and congress critters for representation.....not just because we like voting. Obama seems to look at the executive branch as a monarchy. He feels entitled to bypass congress on anything and everything if they do not give him exactly what he wants.

    Let me see. A democratic Senator from New York, where NYC is the biggest vote grab and has the highest Jewish population outside of Israel.

    All agreements between two countries are considered a treaty. The US constitution is clear, congress shall "advise and consent"...

    but then there's actually people who think Obama actually cares whether he gets a deal or not and equals his predecessor and husband of the next in line. He doesn't, even if the talks now fail he has his reply "they scuttled a good deal"

    Americans keep thinking this guy care about the issues as opposed to his "legacy"

    It cannot go into effect if it is not a treaty, there is no other avenue I know of, no way the Obama nerds can change the lexicon on this one...

    As long as any so-called deal does not crash in his final two years, he will simply blame any future president for it's failure. He is legacy hunting.

    Exactly. If it's not a treaty....it is not legally binding in any way.
