Rep. Alex X. Mooney (WV-2) Expresses Deep Concerns about the Iran Nuclear Deal

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-2) issued the following statement today after the release of the Iran nuclear deal.

“I am deeply concerned about the deal that the Obama administration has struck with Iran. Iran is the largest state sponsor of terrorism.  I am concerned about this deal for the following reasons:

“By lifting the sanctions this deal will infuse billions of dollars into the Iranian economy; this new wealth could then be used for further military buildup. The deal does not allow for anytime anywhere  inspections of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure and will also begin to lift the current embargo on conventional weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles. These are weapons that could hurt not only Israel and our allies in the Middle East, but also endanger the United States.” said Rep. Mooney.

“I will fight with my colleagues in Congress to stop this bad deal and to force the Obama administration to go back to the drawing board.”

Alex X. Mooney represents West Virginia’s second congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is a member of the Budget and Natural Resources Committees.
