Senator Jerry Moran Voices Concern Over Iran Nuclear Deal at Erie Veterans Celebration
A U.S. senator from Kansas speaks out on the deal over Iran’s nuclear weapons during a veterans celebration in Erie.
Thousands pack Erie for the 142nd “Sailors and Soldiers Reunion Parade.”
The week-long event sponsored by Main Street Memories and the American Legion triples the small town’s population of just over a thousand.
Senator Jerry Moran says he’s been coming to the veterans celebration and bean feed for years.
On the recent Iran nuclear deal, he says no deal is better than this deal.
“Iran is our most challenging opponent. they fund and support efforts around the globe to damage America, to kill American citizens and so I worry that the un will agree to the president’s agreement, lift their sanctions, and then it becomes very difficult to get the other countries that have put sanctions against Iran to put them back in place.”
Moran says he’s troubled that the president has decided to ignore coming to congress first, and is already calling on the UN for support, with a vote by the security council scheduled Monday, the body may lift sanctions before congress has even had a chance to weigh in during it’s sixty day review period allotted by law.
Today’s event had special moments of silence for those who have fallen protecting our nation in conflicts.
