47 Republican senators signed an open letter to Iran about their negotiations with President Obama. The letter warned Iran that "the next president could revoke any deal with a stroke of a pen," and the general purpose of the letter was to try to get Congress involved in this foreign policy discussion.
The letter was drafted by Republican Senator Tom Cotton from Arkansas.
Today, Obama and many Democratic politicians publicly expressed their outrage with the letter, some calling it "an attempt to undermine the authority of the commander in chief."
However, as the article mentions, this debate is not really unique to the debate about nuclear weapons in Iran. This really just revived the old debate about what role Congress should have in foreign affairs.
So how do you think the government should approach this issue?
Should this just be between the leaders of the countries involved, or should Congress have a say in what happens?
Do you consider this letter to be treason, as some democratic leaders have said, or is it simply just the G.O.P trying to have a say with regards to this issue?
