Getting the Iran nuclear deal unveiled Tuesday was hard enough.First stop for the deal, under which Iran will curb its nuclear program in return for sanctions relief, is the U.S. Congress, controlled by opposition Republicans who are skeptical about the accord.U.S. lawmakers will have 60 days to chew over the highly complex agreement in what will likely be a period of high drama with intense lobbying on both sides.Many in the U.S. share Israel's concerns that the deal is too weak.Congress does not have to approve the deal, but it has the option of passing a resolution preventing President Barack Obama from waiving most U.S. sanctions.Where U.S. lawmakers could make problems, however, is in the tricky next phase after approval: putting the deal into practice, she said.The curb on Iran's nuclear program in the agreement will take some time to put into practice – likely several months.Iran's nuclear program, curbed under the deal, cannot expand for a decade or more.
