in gaggle, Josh Earnest said that the White House will take to the Internet to make its case for supporting the Iran nuclear deal. He said that the White House would set up a Twitter account @theIranDeal and a page on whitehouse.gov/IranDeal to provide information to help lawmakers and the public understand the agreement.

Earnest also said that while the adminstration believes it has made progress on wait times at veterans’ hospitals, he also said that “the president is not satisfied with where things stand.”  he said the Republicans criticizing progress made so far should look to their position on budgetary policy, noting that many of the veterans’ benefits fall into the non-defense discretionary spending budget.
