Betrayal Alert: GOP Senators 'Rewriting' Constitution To Appease Obama

Few pundits are talking about it because they believe that you're too dumb to understand the particulars, but a select few are coming forward to explain the massive GOP betrayal that just took place...

When it comes to Barack Obama's phony "Iran Deal" - which may be nothing more than an excuse to allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons - it would have taken a majority vote in the Republican-controlled Congress to remove the sanctions from Iran, and without removal of the sanctions, there is no deal...

Now, under the GOP deal, Barack Obama is effectively given carte blanche to do as he pleases and the Senate can now only stop him with a veto-proof majority. So what gives? Why did Members of Congress just vote to cede their authority to Barack Hussein Obama? ...

WND writes:
Under the proposed legislation, Congress can review the president’s deal with the radical Islamists and can reject it with a 60-vote margin. But Obama then can veto it, and it would take a 67-vote total to overturn the veto.

"We've turned the treaty provision on its head," [Mark] Levin said. "Instead of requiring two-thirds of the senators present to approve, this bill explicitly" demands 67 votes to stop the president.

"You need 67 votes to override a presidential veto to undo what Obama’s done," he said. "Now we need a supermajority to override the president rather than a supermajority where the president needs approval for a treaty."

"He's right. Because a treaty requires a two-thirds vote by the Senate to be accepted as law. [Sen. Bob] Corker’s bill turns that on its head, allowing Congress to vote down the treaty with Iran but giving Obama veto power, which must be overridden by a two-thirds vote. MEANING THAT INSTEAD NEEDING TWO-THIRDS OF THE SENATE FOR HIS TREATY, OBAMA ONLY NEEDS ONE-THIRD."...
