  •  I can think of no good (7+ / 0-)

    reason why this has to go forward this week, if at all. There simply is no good reason. The US loses nothing by putting this off. In addition--not covered in the Trita Parsi piece--the Obama Admin does not want this legislation and they have argued against it. Here's Hillary's quote:

    Until we have tested, within the time period set forth by the president, where we think this engagement is going, I am not sure that adding new unilateral sanctions is really that helpful.

    I am really growing to like HC.

    You may find yourself in a beautiful house with a beautiful wife and you may ask yourself, "How did I get here?"

    •  First, do no harm. (3+ / 0-)

      If this isn't in Congress' oath of office, it should be.  This is the perfect example.  No reason NOT to wait; plenty of reason to put it off.  This should be a no-brainer.  

      Leave it all on the road. Make the Republican Party small enough to drown in a bathtub.
