Chairmen of the Senate and House of Representatives budget committees have proposed a budget deal that would restore $220 million for two more Iron Dome anti-missile batteries only months after they were said to be victims of budget sequestration.

The proposed deal needs to be approved by houses of Congress before becoming law. The deal also adds $15 million for a US co-production capability for Iron Dome parts.

    Can anyone trust the US congress? Can they even trust themselves?

  2. Is Obama playing "carrot and stick" with the Iron Dome ? You fill in the blanks. … I know Obama. I know the answer. So does BIbi … I believe.

  3. The US Congress will approve the restoration of $220 million for the Iron Dome. Behind the curtain Obama will be twisting, threatening, beating up on Bibi to "sit" if he helps to approve the funds. It's in their playbook. Trust me.
