Liberal Groups Vow To Hold Democrats Accountable If They Help Republicans Kill Obama Iran Deal

Liberal groups Credo, Daily Kos, Democracy for America, Political Action and USAction sent a letter to Senate Democratic leadership warning them that they will be held accountable if they vote to help Republicans kill the deal on Iran’s nuclear program.

The groups wrote:

Senate Democrats are now faced with a choice: Support President Obama’s diplomacy or vote with Republicans to potentially start a war with Iran. There is no third option. A historic vote on a nuclear deal with Iran is coming. Like the 2002 vote to give President George W. Bush authorization to invade Iraq, Democrats who end up on the wrong side of it will have to answer for their decision for the rest of their careers.


We urge you to support the diplomatic process, and ensure that Democrats don’t deliver the Republicans the votes they need to override a presidential veto of diplomacy-killing legislation and begin yet another war of choice in the Middle East.

It is time for Democrats, liberals, progressives, and all supporters of peace to step up and pressure Senate Democrats to make sure that they sustain any veto issued by President Obama in response to Republican attempts to kill the deal that the international community has negotiated with Iran.

As The President has pointed out, the choice is between war and peace. Republicans like Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) are arguing that Iran’s nuclear facilities could be destroyed with a short bombing campaign. What Cotton doesn’t say is that the bombing of Iran’s nuclear facilities will result in a new war in the Middle East.

The left is firmly united in their support of President Obama’s diplomatic efforts, and if Senate Democrats refuse to listen to what their supporters want, they will pay at the ballot box for years to come.
