Two of Virginia’s congressmen from the central and western areas of the Commonwealth reacted to Tuesday’s news of a deal made with Iran by the Obama administration.
From Congressman Robert Hurt (R-5th Congressional District):
“I am very concerned by the announcement that we have made a deal with Iran given their nuclear ambitions and history of hostility toward the U.S. and our allies. I remain skeptical that Iran will act in good faith and adhere to any of the terms of a deal. Iran has been unwilling to make necessary compromises to meaningfully limit their nuclear program, and there is little reason to believe this will change now. Making a deal just for the sake of doing so is not worth putting the safety and security of our allies and our country at risk.
