“U.S. IN GREATER DANGER” AFTER BAD NUCLEAR DEAL
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta (NH01) released the following statement, after voting for a bill that would effectively stop the Obama Administration’snuclear deal with Iran. The Iran Terror Finance Transparency Act, H.R. 3662, passed the House of Representatives yesterday:
“Since making a deal with weak leadership at the White House, Iran has become increasingly belligerent, more confident that President Obama will allow the terror-sponsor free rein over the Middle East, where American troops are in harm’s way. Iran has increased its kidnappings and even ballistic missile tests, in violation of U.N. resolutions. And now, the Administration has released $150 billion in frozen assets to Iran that Secretary Kerry says will likely fund the country’s aggression. As a result of the bad nuclear deal, the United States is in greater danger. I voted to prevent the President from lifting sanctions on entities helping to build to Iran’s terror industry.”
Specifically, H.R. 3662 would require the President to certify to Congress that “designated nationals and blocked persons” have not provided services to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, its terrorist affiliates or nuclear weapons program, before lifting economic sanctions. Rep. Guinta is a member of the House Committee on Financial Services, as well as the House Budget Committee.
