Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Guinta joined a large House majority in voting against the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the President's nuclear agreement with Iran, which Rep. Guinta said does not go far enough to prevent the Islamic Republic from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
The House also resolved this week that the President failed to provide Congress with full details of the deal, required under the Iranian Nuclear Agreement Review Act, and passed another bill to prevent him from lifting sanctions until 2017.
Rep. Guinta challenged the President’s lax inspections and “side deals” with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to avoid scrutiny. "The Obama Administration has entered into a unilateral agreement with Iran without Congress’ assent or support of the American people, who overwhelmingly reject it, based on the limited information we have," said Rep. Guinta (NH01). "Despite the Administration’s secrecy, we are still discovering crucial details about Iran’s path towards a nuclear weapon. Reported side deals with the IAEA would empower Iranian leaders, chanting ‘Death to America,' to choose their favored inspectors and declare many sites off-limits. I take seriously my responsibility to protect and defend the United States. This president’s weak deal endangers America and our allies. I cannot support it," said Rep. Guinta.
