Senator David Perdue Blasts Senate Democrats for Blocking Iran Vote

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today blasted Senate Democrats for blocking an up-or-down vote on President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran:  

“I am outraged that my Democratic colleagues prevented the Senate – and the American people – from having a say on President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran that will have grave consequences for our nation and the world. There is a bipartisan majority in this body against the deal, yet only Democrats are blocking an up-or-down vote. It’s absolute hypocrisy that the same Democratic senators who supported Congressional oversight back in April have now decided to put partisan politics ahead of global security. If Iran’s Supreme Leader is demanding Iran’s parliament should have a vote, at the very least, the American people deserve the same. I will continue to fight to dismantle this deal and stop a nuclear Iran.”

Senator Perdue is leading the fight to reject this deal in the U.S. Senate. In February, Senator Perdue traveled to the Middle East to meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu in Israel about preventing a nuclear Iran. After this visit, Senator Perdue was an original cosigner of a letter against the nuclear negotiations and has repeatedly spoken out against this disastrous agreement.
