About This File

Immigration is nearly dead, and is probably dead for the foreseeable future so I have created 2 possible replacements. First is the Employment Non-discrimination Act or ENDA. This is a bipartisanship da, not a political captial. ENDA is key to stop employment discrimination against those who identify as LGBT. Bipart is key to get the bill to the floor where the evidence is rather conclusive that there is a majority who will vote for the bill. The second DA is an Iran sanctions political capital da. The Obama administration is working on a deal for Iran to stop is nuclear weapons program. There is good reason to think this deal will be done by the end of the month. Both Democrats and Republicans are against providing any significant concessions to Iran, thus they are working on legislation to block Obama from lifting any sanctions and they plan to add more. So in the status quo they can't get sanctions passed, but Obama needs is political capital prevent passage. Plan takes Obama's capital away, sanctions are passed and no Iran deal. I have included the Immigration DA in case you do not want to give up on it. Finally, the file provides many uniqueness answers regarding Obama's ability to influence, or Congress getting anything done.
