“Thank you Jenny Beth. Listen, thank you so much for being out here. God bless you guys. It feels like we're in Georgia today. I’m so proud of what the Tea Party Patriots are doing and I am very proud they can claim their roots right in my home state of Georgia. Thank you guys for being here.

 

This deal is the worst negotiated deal in American foreign policy history. In 1994, President Bill Clinton told us if we sign a similar deal with the country of North Korea, that it would guarantee we would never have a nuclear weapon on the peninsula of Korea. How did that work out for us? And yet today, we have a similar deal that allows them not only a pathway, but almost a guarantee to a nuclear weapon.

 

There are three things that any country needs for a nuclear weapon. One is they have to have nuclear material. We’re allowing these people to enrich. There was no need to do that. We had them at the table with the sanctions.

 

The second thing is that they have to have a nuclear device, that’s a warhead. They don't have that today. But guess what, in the eleventh hour, our negotiators gave Iran the right to have access to the arms community, which means in five years they can buy that device.

 

In eight years, they get to have a delivery system. They have a missile today that could get to Eastern Europe and, yes, our friends in Israel. They get in eight years access to ballistic missile technology to allow them to put the nuclear material in that nuclear device on top of a missile that can reach right here in Washington, D.C. That is what President Obama agreed to. We cannot allow Iran to ever become a nuclear weapon state. Not now, not in ten years, not ever.

 

Ronald Reagan said, ‘Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.’ We don't pass it down in our bloodstream. It has to be fought for, protected, and passed on so they can do the same thing, or one day in our sunset years, our children and our children's children will be listening to us them tell them what it was once like in America when men and women were free.

 

Ladies and gentlemen, not on my watch, not on your watch. We have to stop this deal now. We have to keep working hard. Thank you and God bless you for what you're doing. Thank you.”
