Any new economic sanctions that Congress tries to impose against Iran during international negotiations to limit the Islamic republics nuclear program will be vetoed, President Barack Obama warned lawmakers on Tuesday, even as he acknowledged the ongoing talks are difficult and may not succeed.

And by ‘we’ you are referring to...
Mayhap if RINO’s understand that the GOP is in control, they might grow a set. How knows ... got to go with what is given you.
The Nanny State freight train will slow from 120 miles per hour to 99 miles per hour.
We, as in American, as in conservatives, as in G_d fearing believers in the exceptionalism of the US. As in ... what the heck are you asking?
You are correct sir, unfortunately. They are all in it together. Rats and RINOs. What a bunch if losers.
