This week's Thursday File was a little delayed because the budget deal was still be debating and the best scenario was unknown for much of the day.

This week's Thursday file contains two viable scenarios - the farm bill and Iran sanctions.
Farm bill - the existing farm bill will expire at the end of the calendar year. If a new bill doesn't get passed by then food prices will spike and we get to see our own version of The Hunger Games. Seriously though, it would be bad for food prices and the file includes extensive evidence backing that up.
Iran sanctions - While a preliminary deal may have been reached, Congress wants to pass a package of sanctions that will be triggered if Iran reneges on the deal. Your argument is that such a package would signal that our negotiations were in bad faith and collapse the deal, enabling Iran prolif.
This week's file focuses on Iran Sanctions. Right now, Obama is involved in meetings in Geneva with the P5+1. They're making progress, but can only come to an international agreement on Iran IF congress doesn't unilaterally pass the Iran legislation that is in the house. So, it's a little different spin to your usual political capital causes X legislation to pass This nuance should help you with teams who don't understand the DA, it is also very unique because it requires stopping legislation which is much more feasible in the current political landscape than other DAs. The impacts are huge from Iran, and should be external to most Latin America affirmatives. Written by Ross and Stephanie Garrett find out more about the file and author below:
