July 20, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government today issued the following statement urging the U.S. Senate to take up the Iran nuclear deal as a treaty and defeat it:
“President Obama has failed to abide by the terms of the Corker Iran bill in delivering the Iran nuclear accord. The legislation was limited to lifting certain sanctions related to Iran’s nuclear agreements, not lifting sanctions on missiles and other weapons activities as the deal does. In the meantime, all Obama believes he has all he needs with the vote at the United Nations Security Council to authorize the deal.
“Our nation’s foreign policy cannot be run out of the United Nations. Without a positive vote in Congress for his deal, Obama shows his outright contempt for Congress and the Constitution. The Senate should bring the Iran deal up under the Treaty Clause of the Constitution and reject it. It is time to restore constitutional government, and stop giving Iran a legal basis to continue enriching uranium for weapons.”
