Congress is set to consider new legislation that would block the Obama administration from awarding Iran billions of US taxpayer dollars in what many describe as a ransom payment, according to a copy of the legislation obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) will introduce on Tuesday new legislation that would prohibit the Obama administration from moving forward with all payments to Iran, according to the bill, which would also force Iran to return billions of dollars in US funds that have already been delivered to Tehran by the White House.

    Trump has affected the congress by giving them the courage to stand against Obama. I really do not know what Obama is going to do with a congressional insurrection, being called names in the Phillipines, and being forced to exit his own jet without pomp and circumstance. If he has any power to start a war or do something so destructive on a scale of 10 it would be an eleven if he has any control over nukes he would do something to alter the course of world events for the worse. He is seething, he has been insulted, he is enraged, him and his wife think of themselves as King and queen of the world and he will stop at nothing to get even with those that obstruct his objectives. The only thing you see on the news is the Russians are going to steal the election…..if the press is saying it it’s a lie to perpetrate a hoax. Is Obama going to nullify the election and blame it on Russia delaying it so he will have the time to spark WWW3. I do not know if he has any generals that will help him stoke a war….no one seems to know what he is up to until it’s to late.
