AIPAC: Reid Praises Obama's Call For Iran Sanctions

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) just praised a bill pushed by Barack Obama to put more pressure on Iran.

The bill, proposed last year by Obama and Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) and then-Rep. Tom Lantos (D-Calif.), seeks to make it easier for U.S. investors to divest themselves from assets controlled by companies tied to Iran.

Reid said the bill would "place severe costs" on the Islamic state.

"More senators should join this," Reid said.

He did not mention Hillary Clinton in the Iran portion of his address.
