We Must Continue The Fight To Stop Obama's Bad Deal With Iran
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, released the following statement regarding votes on the
Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act:
"This bill was a missed opportunity.
If Congress had acted to defend our constitutional authority - if Congress had
adopted the Cruz-Toomey amendment - then we would be able to stop a bad Iran
deal. Instead, the odds are now overwhelming that under these ground rules
President Obama will negotiate, and Congress will acquiesce to, a terrible deal
that allows Iran to acquire nuclear weapons and will endanger the lives of
millions of Americans and our allies.
"I voted no on cloture because we
should have insisted on amendments to put real teeth in this bill. Ultimately, I
voted yes on final passage because it may delay, slightly, President Obama's
ability to lift the Iran sanctions and it ensures we will have a Congressional
debate on the merits of the Iran deal. I will continue to lead the fight to
prevent the Islamic Republic of Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and to
protect the national security of America and our allies."
Sen. Cruz spoke
about this legislation on the Senate floor on Wednesday. (See video above)
