Cruz Says Nuclear Deal Would Increase Iran’s MilitarizationDerek Wallbank and Madeline McMahon
The Iran nuclear deal being pushed by the Obama administration will have “catastrophic” consequences, in part because it “accelerates Iran acquiring nuclear weapons,” Sen. Ted Cruz says via satellite to a Republican presidential forum at St. Anselm College in Manchester, N.H.
- Says he will do all he can to mobilize against deal
- Says politicians in both parties are “in bed” with special interests; says he’s the leader who would “stand up to the Washington cartel”
- On health care, says insurance should be de-linked from employment; says 2016 election should be referendum on Obamacare
- NOTE: 14 Republican presidential candidates are participating in candidate forum sponsored by New Hampshire Union Leader, Charleston Post and Courier, and Cedar Rapids Gazette, among other media outlets
