President Obama is preparing to meet Tuesday with key senators as part of a full-court press by the administration to ensure that hawks on the Hill hold off on any new sanctions for Iran while delicate talks are under way.

A Senate Democratic leadership aide confirmed to Fox News that Obama will meet with members of the Senate leadership, as well as the chairmen and top Republicans on several key committees. The sitdown at the White House comes on the heels of visits by Secretary of State John Kerry and Vice President Biden on the same issue.

The administration is concerned that Congress might press ahead with a new round of tough sanctions on Iran. While lawmakers think additional sanctions could help make Iran more pliable at the negotiating table over its nuclear program, the administration argues it would have the opposite effect.

Something like:  "if you like your sanctions you can keep them?"  Something to counterbalance his statements to Iran, which largely amount to:  "if you like your nukes you can keep them."  Only this time he isn't lying.
