    TN Sen. Corker made a deal with Obama, who could not get the Iran deal through the US Senate as a treaty that required two-thirds approval.

    So Sen. Corker allowed Obama to submit the deal as an executive agreement that need a simple majority to pass or fail. Then Obama could veto the result and Congress would need a two-thirds majority to override Obama's veto. In other words, Obama would only need one third of the Congress to get the Iran deal approved.

    And then it turns out that the Democrats have enough votes in the Senate to prevent the deal from even being debated and voted upon in the Senate so that the deal will take effect without Congress doing anything because of a built-in timeline, or deadline (no pun intended).

    Here's a short video of political consultant Dick Morris explaining what Corker did:

    We should all thank Sen Corker for what he did to introduce minority rule into the USA.
