Washington, DC – Wisconsin Congressman and House Ways and Means Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement after the Obama Administration announced an agreement on nuclear negotiations with Iran:
“This is a terrible deal. It will not prevent Iran from expanding its nuclear programs, and it will only delay its development of nuclear weapons. The Administration has mishandled these negotiations from the start and agreeing to this deal will make the Middle East a more dangerous place.
“Lifting the sanctions prematurely on Iran is a mistake, allowing the ban related to ballistic missiles to lapse is foolish, and trusting a violent Iranian regime that has been nothing but hostile to America is an error we cannot afford to make. In short, the deal between the Administration and Iran will make America and our allies less secure, and Congress should reject it.”
