Johnson: Give Americans a Say on Iran Deal

WASHINGTON — Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) made these remarks Thursday about news of a “framework” for a deal with Iran: 

“If President Obama truly believes that this ‘framework’ for a deal will prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, he ought to be able to conclusively prove it to Congress and, more importantly,  to the American people.   As a result, he should present that evidence and allow the American people to have a say through their elected representatives as to whether or not he is correct.  If he is confident that this deal lives up to its billing, he should submit the final deal to the Senate for ratification.  I will be either introducing or supporting legislation that will require Senate ratification.”
