Schumer Weighs In About Iran

U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer isn't mincing words when it comes to President Obama Administration's recent agreement with Iran.
U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer isn't mincing words when it comes to President Obama Administration's recent agreement with Iran. According to ABC News, most Iranians like the deal, while Congress isn't convinced. Under the agreement, Iran agreed to freeze it's nuclear program and allow daily monitoring of key facilities. In exchange, the U.S. and its allies would ease about seven billion dollars worth of sanctions. Meanwhile, Israel, which was threatened to be destroyed by Iran, has said it will act alone, if necessary, to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.

Chuck Schumer says, "I've been critical of the agreement that Secretary Kerry came about, because I think the bottom line is this, it's not proportionate. The Iranians, all they have to do is freeze their atomic bomb making capabilities, but we are reducing the sanctions. Let's face it, the leaders of Iran didn't come to the table to talk out of the goodness of their hearts, they are terrorists, they are very bad people, but the sanctions brought them to their knees. By reducing the sanctions before they destroy any of their bomb making capability I think was a mistake."

Some other members of the U.S. Senate are also concerned about the potential deal.
