Opponents of Iran Nuclear Deal Plan to Storm Congressional Town Hall Meetings
Wall Street Journal – Opponents of the Iran nuclear deal are borrowing a tactic from the fight over Obamacare: taking a stand during town halls with members of Congress. The question is how heated the debate will get.
Many lawmakers are expected to hold town halls, coffee gatherings or similar events during the August recess, which falls within a 60-day period Congress has to review the internationally negotiated agreement with Iran. A similar series of gatherings held in 2009 during the congressional debate over health care reform intensified opposition to Obamacare and devolved into scuffles and shouting matches.
