house Bill H.R. 3199

Should the Iran Nuclear Deal be Voted on Like a Treaty?

Argument in favor

Requiring the Iran nuclear deal to be approved by the Senate as if it were a treaty would prove that there is strong consensus for or against it from the American people. If there isn’t broad support for the deal, the U.S. shouldn’t enter into it.

According to the Library of Congress, "executive agreements" are treaties under international law. Therefore the Senate should have to confirm this "agreement." Let's do this the right way.

Let's follow the Constitution, shall we? If this is going to bind the U.S., then this is a law, and if this is a law, it should be a treaty. I'm surprised this agreement has not been treated as such. Even the SALT and START agreements were treaties. Let's do it right, let's follow the Constitution.

Anything that commits our country to terms with another country IS a treaty.

Argument opposed

This bill would make it next to impossible to pass the deal. Requiring two-thirds of the Senate to approve the deal by treating it like a treaty could mean backing out of the deal all together, and lead to war.

Republicans are dangerous and said it was bad before they even read it. Let diplomacy work. It always has in the past. If it doesn't then we get everything back and Iran suffers even more. We loose NOTHING in this deal. Stop warmongering.

It is too important that the Iran deal goes through for the safety of the U.S., the Middle East & everyone else for it to be jeopardized by a procedural move to defeat it. So the answer is HELL NO!!

    Yes!! This is another instance where Dear Leader has acted as a dictator, as he has on many issues. This boondoggle should have been a treaty from the beginning. The Mullah in the White House knew it would never pass as a treaty, hence an agreement to bypass the American people. I PROPOSE THE FOLLOWING BILL: If in the next 25 years Iran uses a nuclear device against Israel, the United States, or ANY area outside their borders, charges of TREASON will be levied against the following people: Barrack Obama, Joseph Biden, John F Kerry, and all politicians who voted or supported this criminal act. Please explain to me how any politician who has taken an oath to defend this nation can in good conscience support this purely political garbage. Traitors all.

    The power of foreign policy rests with the executive; congress treaty making and declarations of war powers are not applicable to executive orders.

    This is a treaty. The constitution requires that the executive branch have the approval of the Senate.

    I think this proposal should go through the proper motions. With that being said, I think it would still pass regardless.

    The congress needs to begin to reassert itself against an executive that is looking more and more like a tyrannical monarchy.

    Any agreement with a foreign country should be treated as a treaty. That's what an agreement between nations is. It should also have to pass through the Senate, and only the Senate.
