Washington, D.C. – Today, Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) will join the Endowment for Middle East Truth’s Press Conference on the West Front Grassy Area of the Capitol at 12:30 p.m. to speak out against the Iran nuclear deal. CWALAC CEO and President Penny Nance had this to say:
“The content of this deal with Iran is bad for the U.S., our ally Israel, and the four American hostages who were left behind.
“Iran is the leading state sponsor of terrorism. Once implemented, this deal will release $150 billion in sanctions relief. A good portion of that could be used to fund terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah – both groups which reside around Israel and have carried out attacks against our ally.
“President Obama may have the necessary votes from Democrats to withhold a veto override attempt by Congress, but this week our elected officials get to cast a vote and speak for the American people.
“Almost sixty percent of Americans agree that this deal makes the world less safe. Those serving in the United States Senate and House of Representatives should remember if they vote in support of this deal, they are on record and will not have the support of the Obama Administration once the consequences of this accord are revealed. Those who support this deal will be held accountable for the part they play.”
