Sasse Statement on U.N. Iran Deal Vote

“Even by Washington's low standards, the administration's condescension is astounding.”

July 20, 2015

U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement today after the U.N. Security Council unanimously approved the Obama Administration's nuclear deal with Iran before the American people have had an opportunity to thoroughly review the agreement through their elected representatives in Congress.

“Even by Washington's low standards, the administration's condescension is astounding. Nebraskans did not elect anyone to the U.N. Security Council. Yet the administration is more concerned with Russian and Chinese bureaucrats than with engaging the American people. For decades, Democrats and Republicans worked on a bipartisan basis to prevent nuclear proliferation, and the Congress must now again insist that the representatives of the American people—not the United Nations—set U.S. foreign policy.”
