Ms. Poulson was responding to Rep. Julia Brownley's Aug. 30 guest column, "Why I am supporting the Iran nuclear deal." It appears Ms. Poulson's strong objection against Rep. Brownley's support for the Iran deal was purely based on the words "Iran Deal" since the heavy propaganda and misinformation belies the good intent in the nuclear deal way before it was concluded.
Ms. Poulson suggesting Brownley was being disloyal reveals her party leanings. A freshman GOP senator sent a letter to the Iran ayatollah, signed by 47 Republican senators, saying: "Don't trust our president." The New York Post decried in headlines: "47 GOP senators are traitors."
In addition, the GOP House Speaker John Boehner invited Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel to speak before the Congress without consulting with President Obama regarding the Iran deal. That broke a long-standing protocol.
Ms. Poulson is correct in suggesting, "Now is the time to remain loyal to our own country." Yes, and it's time for the Republicans to be respectful and loyal to our president and our nation by trying diplomacy over war as is the main intent of the Iran deal.
