GOP Slams Obama's Move to Clear Iran Pact Through U.N. First

Influential Republicans called it an “affront” to Americans that President Barack Obama took his nuclear accord with Iran to the United Nations before a congressional vote, with Senator Marco Rubio dubbing July 20th as “Obama’s Capitulation Monday.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, called the move to present the pact to the council “further evidence of a weak president trying to sell a bad deal” while Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, charged that the decision is an “affront to the American people.”
