Maloney to Vote “No” on Iran Deal

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (NY), co-Chair of the Hellenic Caucus with Congressman Gus Bilirakis (R-FL), and Ranking Democrat of the Joint Economic Committee, announced on August 26 that she will vote against ratification of President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, the New York Daily News reported.

“I am against it,” Maloney said.

She explained, in her official statement, that: “Since President Obama and Secretary Kerry announced an agreement to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, I have given the agreement, which is one of the most important issues to come before the U.S. Congress in decades, the thoughtful and detailed study it deserves. I have carefully examined the issues, reviewed classified material, talked with administration officials, consulted with experts on both sides, and heard from numerous community leaders and constituents.

“The President and the Secretary deserve credit for choosing the path of diplomacy in an effort to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons. There are strong arguments for and against the agreement but, as a matter of conscience, I have decided to oppose it.”

Other New York members of Congress, such as Senator Chuck Schumer and Representative Jerry Nadler, both Democrats, have also voiced their opinion about this deal, which remains divisive but is not necessarily drawn on party lines.

The Jewish-American community, echoing the sentiments of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, strongly opposes it. Nadler, in fact, is the only Jewish member of Congress who supports it.
