Senator David Perdue Votes Multiple Times Against Obama’s Deal with Iran

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today released the following statement after Senate Democrats blocked another critical up-or-down vote on President Obama’s disastrous nuclear agreement with Iran:

“I have now cast multiple votes against President Obama’s dangerous deal with Iran. While this deal should be a non-partisan issue, Democrats once again blocked a critical up-or-down vote in the Senate. There is bipartisan agreement against this deal, but when given the opportunity most Senate Democrats refused to join us in sending a strong signal to our allies that the United States will not embrace a nuclear Iran.

“What will it take for Senate Democrats to realize they are being fooled? Yesterday, Iran’s Supreme Leader released a propaganda video vowing to defeat the United State and last week, the Ayatollah pledged to eliminate our ally, Israel, within the next 25 years. Supporters of this deal are letting more money and resources go towards Iran’s regional terrorism and anti-American activity. Iran cannot be trusted and no Member of Congress with a clear conscious should support this deal given its grave consequences.”
