Support the Iran Deal: It's Time to Be Peacemakers

Opponents of the agreement had hoped to use the August break to sway undecided members of Congress. They pledged to spend millions of dollars on TV ads. They threatened to fill town hall meetings with angry, sign-waving constituents. Their intent was to build a veto-proof majority in the House and Senate to scuttle this plan, which is one of the Obama administration's signature foreign policy achievements -- reason enough for opposition for many Republican lawmakers. It didn't happen, and now it's time to be peacemakers.
