Cotton: Obama Is ‘Risking Our Nat’l Security to Secure a Presidential Legacy’

Tuesday at the Heritage Action for America’s second annual policy summit, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said President Barack Obama’s one-sided attempt to make a nuclear deal with Iran is “risking our national security to secure a presidential legacy.”

Cotton said, “Congressional action should start with crippling new sanctions against Iran. These sanctions should be immediate. They should not be contingent on further negotiations with Iran. On the contrary, Iran is achieving through slow motion all that it might want in a final deal, exploiting the Obama administration’s desperation to keep the negotiations alive and for a deal, any deal. It’s time for the responsible adults in both parties of Congress to stop this farce. Risking our national security to secure a presidential legacy is an unacceptable compromise.”
