With the Iran deal disapproval now facing a real filibuster threat in the Senate, a call has come from across the Capitol for the Senate to go nuclear.  

Rep. Steven Palazzo, a Republican from Mississippi, has written to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., encouraging the leader to effectively change the Senate's rules with a simple majority to allow just 51 senators to overcome procedural hurdles and get legislation disapproving the international agreement with Iran to President Barack Obama's desk, forcing a veto.
