[h=1]Top Democrats, Republicans blast Obama's nuclear deal with Iran[/h] By Bernie Becker The Hill EXCERPT:

Top lawmakers on both side of the aisle on Sunday voiced skepticism about the newly struck agreement with Iran, and vowed to keep up the pressure with sanctions.

Senior members in both chambers said that, at first glance, Iran got the better end of the deal with western powers, China and Russia effectively exchanging looser sanctions for very little progress in impeding Tehrans nuclear capabilities.

Some powerful lawmakers have said theyre willing to seek new sanctions now, but delay their implementation until after the six months covered by the current deal. But others werent even willing to go that far.Sen. Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), the No. 3 Democrat in the chamber, called the deal disproportionately good for Iran, and that it was only strong sanctions that gave the U.S. and its allies any leverage over Tehran.

This disproportionality of this agreement makes it more likely that Democrats and Republicans will join together and pass additional sanctions when we return in December, Schumer said in a Sunday statement.
