McConnell holds a news conference after the weekly party caucus policy luncheons at the U.S. Capitol in WashingtonBy Doina Chiacu and Alina Selyukh WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Sunday that President Barack Obama was on the verge of making a “very bad deal” on Iran’s nuclear program and made clear that Congress will weigh in on any agreement. “We’re alarmed about it.” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was resuming negotiations with the Iranians in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Sunday with the goal of reaching a framework agreement by the end of March. As negotiations intensified this month, opposition to the agreement in the works erupted in the U.S. Congress. An open letter sent last week to Iran’s leaders from 47 Republicans in the 100-member Senate warned that any nuclear deal reached with Obama may be undone after he leaves office in 2017.
