Congressman Doug Collins: “We got a bad deal”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today Congressman Doug Collins issued the following statement in response to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the Iranian nuclear deal:

“We knew from the beginning that any deal negotiated by the Obama administration would not go far enough to keep Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, or protect Israel from a nuclear Iran. If Congress approves this agreement, we will have permanently ceded economic sanctions in exchange for temporary cooperation from Iran. I voted against Congress’ review of this agreement, because it was obvious that no matter what, it would be a bad deal. The President has facilitated cooperation with a country that openly chants, “Death to America” in the streets. Now we must act to nullify this agreement as soon as possible, to protect Israel and ourselves from the disaster that will come if we continue to ignore the violence and destruction Iran will unleash on the world once they have the tools they need.”
