Republicans schedule second Iran deal vote for Tuesday

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKBN) – Republicans in Congress have scheduled a second vote on the Iran nuclear deal for Tuesday.

The second vote comes a week after the GOP members in the senate tried and failed to pass a resolution against the deal. A new CNN poll said 59 percent of Americans disapprove of the way President Obama is handling America’s relationship with Iran.

Republican lawmakers such as local representative Bill Johnson said they will continue to fight the Iran deal.

“Why would we choose to negotiate with someone and give them access to technology that will lead to the creation of a nuclear weapon? Why would we do that? It just does not make common sense,” Representative Johnson said.

The White House says that the Iran deal will make sure the country’s nuclear program will be exclusively peaceful and would prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.
