Veto Override?

Reader comment on item: Obama's Iran Deal Has the Makings of a Catastrophe

Dr. Pipes, can you please expand upon the sentence, "...will the Democrats rise to the occasion and provide the votes for a veto override?"

What would Obama be vetoing? The signed but unratified treaty would be submitted for ratification by his own party, so presumably he wouldn't veto that. Are you referring to a Republican counterproposal? Which one?

Daniel Pipes replies:

With White House approval, the Congress will be considering the Vienna agreement. I am not referring here to the showpiece Republican proposal but to the agreement itself.
