Stopping A Nuclear Iran: “The goal all along, according to President Obama and Secretary Kerry, was to be sure that this deal precluded Iran from becoming nuclear. I read every page in this document, 159 pages. I read the classified documents, and I'm convinced that it fails in that regard. It does not preclude Iran from becoming a nuclear weapon state.”

Iran Deal Fails The American People: “We got a unanimous vote out of committee and a 98-1 vote in the Senate to get oversight review of this thing. I’m hopeful that we can move past partisan politics and look at this thing in a non-partisan way. This is about the future of our country and the future of our world...This is too important. We have got to get this right. Right now, this deal fails the American people.”

Building Bipartisan Consensus To Reject Iran Deal: “What we are trying to do is give us all a chance to develop a bipartisan consensus. That’s what we’ve been doing here in the Foreign Relations Committee. We recognize this is bigger than partisan politics, and I'm hopeful that our Democrat and Republican colleagues will move to reject this deal. That's where we are working now behind the scenes to get 67 votes to reject this.”
