During the next two weeks the U.S. Congress is going to decide to approve or kill the Iran deal. My expectation is that Sens. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, together with Rep. Mark Sanford, will vote “no.” I suggest that they look at the losers and winners in this vote.

Sens. Graham and Scott and Rep. Sanford are against the Iran deal, probably because Barack Obama is for it. To get re-elected, their marketing/political consultants tell them they need to always oppose the president, no matter what.

If they vote “no” to the deal, the losers will be the United States and the people of Israel. The winners will be Russia, China, England, France and Benjamin Netanyahu.

Voting “no” might get them re-elected, but what will be the long-term consequences for our children?
