Roy Blunt, United States Senator for Missouri Dear Unity, As you may have read, I recently signed an open letter explaining the U.S. Constitution to the Iranian government.� The letter - which was led by Senator Tom Cotton from Arkansas and co-signed by 45 of our colleagues - has garnered a lot of attention from the White House and my Democrat colleagues in the Senate. *Whether President Obama likes it or not, Congress has a role to play in preventing a nuclear Iran.* Our message wasn't communicated in secret, and no one seems to debate the accuracy of our message. The Constitution matters, and any deal that President Obama negotiates unilaterally with the Iranian government is not a long-term deal. (Even Secretary of State John Kerry agrees [link 1].) I can't think of anything more destabilizing in the Middle East than a nuclear Iran. Unfortunately, it's clear that President Obama would like to continue trying to ignore or circumvent Congress in this debate.� [image = blunt.enews.senate.gov//images/user_images/11122222.jpg] [link 2] *A bad deal is worse than no deal with Iran.

Dear Unity,

As you may have read, I recently signed an open letter explaining the U.S. Constitution to the Iranian government. 

The letter - which was led by Senator Tom Cotton from Arkansas and co-signed by 45 of our colleagues - has garnered a lot of attention from the White House and my Democrat colleagues in the Senate.

Whether President Obama likes it or not, Congress has a role to play in preventing a nuclear Iran.

Our message wasn't communicated in secret, and no one seems to debate the accuracy of our message. The Constitution matters, and any deal that President Obama negotiates unilaterally with the Iranian government is not a long-term deal. (Even Secretary of State John Kerry I can't think of anything more destabilizing in the Middle East than a nuclear Iran. Unfortunately, it's clear that President Obama would like to continue trying to ignore or circumvent Congress in this debate. 

A bad deal is worse than no deal with Iran. Right now, the president is on the verge of a very bad deal.

The Senate has an important role to play in this discussion. I'm standing up against a nuclear-capable Iran, and I'll continue to stand up for the U.S. Constitution.

As always, I invite you to join the conversation online by sharing your thoughts on

Sincere regards,
