Why Chuck Schumer's Move Won't Kill the Iran Deal

The presumptive next Democratic leader's opposition matters, but probably won't be a tipping point.

WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 10: Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) (C) speaks during a news conference to announce they will fast-track new legislation to prevent for-profit employers from refusing to cover health benefits for religious reasons with (L-R) Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO), Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin (D-IL) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) at the U.S. Capitol July 10, 2014 in Washington, DC. Co-authored by Udall and Murray, the legislation would override the Supreme Court's recent decision in the Hobby Lobby case and compel for-profit business to cover contraception for their employees, as required by the Affordable Care Act.
