Bennet silent while Obama works to suffocate voice of American people, empower Iran
DENVER—Proponents of the Iran Deal are plotting their final moves as Congress prepares to return from August recess next week. President Obama has nearly secured the needed votes in the Senate to protect the deal.
Opponents of the deal are mounting a disapproval resolution, with a vote expected by September 17. President Obama is working on securing 41 senators in support of the deal to prevent the vote entirely.
Advancing Colorado Executive Director Jonathan Lockwood released the following statement:
“Coloradans are livid with outrage that Sen. Michael Bennet is playing politics and thinks he is above telling them his positions on critical issues like the president’s terror-unleashing Iran Deal. Social media is flooding with fury, and if he thinks that his silence is going to protect him and that he can just sweep the nuclear bomb under the rug, he will find out he is dead wrong with the blowback of a public outcry.”
Last week, while Iran unveiled a new surface-to-surface missile, Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., has come to the conclusion that, “there is not a better deal available.”
Bennet added that he has “spoken” with President Obama about the deal. Meanwhile, opposition to the Iran Deal continues to grow.
Nearly 200 retired U.S. generals and admirals penned a letter to Congress on Wednesday urging lawmakers to reject the agreement, saying that it threatens national security, the Washington Post reported.
Bennet refuses to take a clear position on the critical national security issue, despite his claim that playing politics “is the last thing we need.”
