U.S. Congressman Rick Allen (R-Ga.-12) today acted again to stop the President’s disastrous nuclear deal with Iran. Allen voted with his colleagues in the House to reject legislation approving the Iran nuclear agreement and also supported separate legislation, H.R. 3460, to suspend until January 21, 2017, the President’s ability to move forward with any removal of sanctions outlined in the deal. Allen issued the following statement:

“The more the American people find out about this terrible deal, the more they are against it. The President’s dangerous agreement gives Iran a clear path to a nuclear weapon within a matter of years, and in the meantime, Iran will have access to billions of dollars to promote terrorism and endanger our nation, Israel and the world. What’s more, details of secret side deals Iran has made still have not been provided to Congress. I cannot support any agreement that puts the security of Americans and our allies at risk and emboldens the Iranian regime. Iran has proven over and over they cannot be trusted, and we should not be lifting sanctions, our biggest source of leverage to hold Iran accountable. That is why I voted to reject this agreement, prevent the President from moving forward with sanctions relief, and will continue to fight to stop this bad deal.”
