Rep. Alex X. Mooney (WV-2) Speaks Out Against Iran Deal

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Republican Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-2) spoke on the floor of the United States House of Representatives against the imminent Iran nuclear deal. The United States is currently in talks with Iran to reach a nuclear agreement. The deadline for reaching a deal with Iran is June 30, 2015.  

“The single greatest threat to the national security of the United States is Iran’s drive for nuclear weapons. Iran is the world’s leading sponsor of terror—a stronghold for terrorists whose very mission is to destroy democracy.  said Rep. Mooney.

“As things stand, these ongoing nuclear negotiations are placing far too much faith in a country that has proven itself both deceptive and unpredictable.”

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.
