Today, Congressman Mike Bishop (MI-08) issued the following statement in response to the House’s 162-269 vote rejecting H.R. 3461, to approve the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, signed at Vienna on July 14, 2015, relating to the nuclear program of Iran:

“If the past is any indication of the future, America cannot settle for an agreement that relies on the hope that broad, societal change in Iran might take place. A deal that enables a belligerent state sponsor of terror to gain access to hundreds of billions of dollars and a path to nuclear weapons – without the release of our American hostages like Michigan’s Amir Hekmati – is not a deal for security; it is a deal of concession.

“For six long years, this administration has led from behind, and this appeasement to a nation that chants ‘death to America’ is no different. The world is watching, waiting for us to embrace peace through strength – not weakness or fear.”
