Kerry gets his way on Iran

Kerry getting his way is never good for America.
Check it out:

Secretary of State John Kerry and the Obama administration appear to have won a fight with Congress over new Iran sanctions — at least for now.

As Kerry readied to give testimony on Tuesday to the House Foreign Affairs Committee on the administration’s controversial interim nuclear deal with Iran, key senators said there is little chance Congress will approve new sanctions this year .

“I’m inclined to support [Secretary of State] John Kerry” and hold off for now, Senate Banking Committee Chairman Tim Johnson (D-S.D.) told The Hill. “We’ll see. Not this year.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), an Iran hawk and member of the Armed Services panel, said he was working on a new bipartisan bill, but acknowledged it might not be ready until next year, though.
