About This File

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.



We have included in the file AFF answers to Iran, Immigration, SNAP, and ENDA. Politics are in flux right now and you need to be prepared to answer a wide variety of positions. Neg updates are also included for immigration and ENDA. The backfile for those disads are in this weeks TF so you can run ANY of the three DAs mentioned. This file should provide you all the flexibility to finish your semester strong.
