The clock is ticking on a nuclear Iran, and political prisoners like the Washington Post's Jason Rezaian can't afford for us to wait. Today I introduced S.XXX, the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2015, to give President Obama a diplomatic insurance policy by imposing economic pressure on the Iranian regime if negotiations fail to produce a deal by the June 30th deadline. In short, the Kirk-Menendez sanctions bill would: - Increase the chances of an acceptable nuclear agreement with Iran - Apply economic pressure to Iran with the goal of halting Iran's nuclear threat - Force Iran to dismantle their illicit nuclear infrastructure We need a deal that is comprehensive, airtight and long-lasting. I hope for a diplomatic breakthrough, but without new economic pressure, Iran is only getting closer to a nuclear bomb. *LEARN MORE ABOUT THE BILL* [link 2] To learn more about my work on your behalf, please visit my website [link 3].

Stop The Clock On A Nuclear Iran

Dear unity,

During negotiations with the United States, Iran has executed over 700 people, produced enough enriched uranium for 2 nuclear bombs and advanced a nuclear bomb-making program that brings us closer to nuclear war in the Middle East. In fact, Secretary of State John Kerry has said that Iran is only 2 months away from nuclear breakout. The clock is ticking on a nuclear Iran, and American citizens held hostage by Iran�s mullahs � such as Pastor Saeed Abedini and Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian � can�t afford for us to wait.

Today I introduced S. 269, the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2015, a bipartisan bill to give the American people an insurance policy if the President�s diplomacy with Iran fails. Known as the Kirk-Menendez bill, the legislation would impose crippling economic pressure if Iran refuses to agree to a deal that decisively ends its nuclear threat by the Administration�s own June 30th deadline.

A good nuclear deal with Iran will be comprehensive, airtight and long-lasting. I hope for a diplomatic breakthrough, but without new economic pressure, Iran will only get closer to a nuclear bomb.
