Jamie Raskin on War & Peace

 

 


Iran nuke deal is best chance to prevent Iranian nukes

Jamie strongly supports nuclear non-proliferation and is backing the Obama administration's Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which is designed to thwart the Republic of Iran's nuclear ambitions. After speaking with members of Congress, consulting foreign policy experts, researching every side of the issue, and talking with many 8th District residents with strong opinions on all sides of the issue, Jamie has concluded that approving the agreement represents our best chance to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear bomb. The agreement pairs stringent physical prohibitions with a robust inspections regime that will immediately put inspectors on the ground. Jamie also points out that the sanctions will quickly snap back into place if Iran tries to cheat on the deal. While the JCPOA is imperfect, and critics raise many valid concerns that should not be dismissed out of hand, Jamie is convinced the agreement represents our best option to neutralize Iran's nuclear ambitions.

Supports American intervention in Mideast beyond air support.

Raskin supports the PVS survey question on Mideast intervention

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'National Security: Do you support increased American intervention in Iraq and Syria beyond air support?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
