Newly-elected Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) is insisting that any deal with Iran by the Obama Regime have the approval of Congress. In a speech on the Senate floor recently, she noted:

While I believe Iran’s long-term goal is developing nuclear weapons, its most effective line of effort against us and our allies has been through its unwavering support of terrorism. 

The Obama Administration should only accept a final deal which prohibits sanctions relief until Iran abandons its support of terrorism.

Providing Iran with sanctions relief would only enhance their opportunity to fund proxy groups which threaten our Israeli allies, and whose activities have led to horrible consequences to millions of people in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.

While the Obama Administration has been seemingly eager to relieve sanctions in an effort to convince Iran to sign a nuclear deal, Congress cannot stand by and watch as a deal is negotiated that paves the way for Iran to obtain nuclear weapons. We must take a step back and examine their actions, and it is absolutely crucial we understand who is on the other side of the negotiating table.
