Washington, D.C. â€“ Today, the House voted against President Obamaâ€™s Iran nuclear deal by a vote of 162-269. Congressman Buck voted against the resolution, and released the following statement:
â€œThe President's deal with Iran is at best delusional and at worst despicable. It makes the entire world less safe. Whether you live in Julesburg or Jerusalem, a nuclear Iran poses a threat,â€ said Congressman Buck.
â€œFrom the beginning I urged my colleagues to follow the Constitution and treat this deal as a treaty. I voted against H.R. 1191, the Corker-Cardin bill,â€ Buck stated. â€œYesterday the House demanded that President Obama submit the entire agreement to Congress so that we can make an informed decision. Today I voted against the deal itself. At least Americans who oppose this deal 2-to-1 will know who stands with them and who doesn't.â€
He concluded: â€œI cannot believe that on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack ever on American soil, we have a President and a party that agrees to give the leading state sponsor of terrorism billions of dollars to be the central bank of terror.â€
