Congress should remove President Obama's authority to waive Iran sanctions

Today the Emergency Committee for Israel released the following statement on the latest failure of the Obama administration's Iran talks:

After relaxing sanctions and making ill-advised concessions on Iran's nuclear program, the Obama Administration has nonetheless been unable to close a deal. There's no point waiting seven months for either another failure or a truly terrible deal. Congress should act now to reimpose sanctions and re-establish U.S. red lines that will prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability. To that end, such legislation must limit the president's authority to waive sanctions, an authority the president has already signaled a willingness to abuse in his desperate quest for a deal with the mullahs.
