Issa: World Will Pay Terrible Price for President's Failure to Confront Iran
Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-49) today released the following statement after voting against President Obama's proposed Iran deal:
"Today I voted against the President's deal with Iran because it will provide the world's foremost state-sponsor of terrorism with over $100 billion almost immediately, access to conventional arms in five years, ballistic missile technology in eight years, and an unfettered path to the bomb in ten to fifteen years. This is the same rogue nation that actively subverts peace and stability throughout the Middle East with its material support of Hamas, Hezbollah, Assad, and Houthi militants.
"The Iranian regime has made abundantly clear that it has no intention of changing its ways. And President Obama, for his part, admits that this bill only delays the inevitable, pushing the problem's ultimate resolution onto a future Administration that will likely find the window to fully address an existential threat to America and her allies has long since passed. I fear the world will pay a terrible price for this President's failure to confront the Iranian problem at this critical moment, and to instead codify a policy of capitulation and appeasement. It is the wrong policy at the wrong time, and we must reject it."
