The  Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the "Iran deal," must stay in place.


Pulling out of the deal would leave our allies still enforcing it, and the United States dealing with a dangerous Iran.  The deal should stand.


Iran has been stoking the fires of discontent and anti-American sentiment in Yemen, Iraq and Syria.  They use diplomatic means to reach the hearts and minds of the people, and the message condemns the West and democratic ideals.  These countries have aligned with Russian interests and require a response.


We must counter with our own diplomatic aid  message, instead of cutting the diplomatic budget by over 30%.
