Updated 3:30 p.m. | President Barack Obama has been criticized repeatedly by his detractors for a perceived reluctance to work with Congress, and Thursday was no different.  

After Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. made a visit to the Capitol to meet with a bipartisan group of senators and discuss the terms of the Iran nuclear deal, Sen. Bob Corker expressed concern that the president was going to the U.N. Security Council to lobby support before Congress votes on the deal. “I look at that as (an affront) to the American people,” the Tennessee Republican and Foreign Relations chairman told CQ Roll Call, adding the council would be "agreeing to an agreement that they don’t even know they can implement."
