Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) made the following statement after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress.

"Today, Prime Minister Netanyahu made a powerful and persuasive case. I have long said the Obama administration has been much too weak on Iran, endangering our country and the security of the world. I am very concerned that a bad deal with Iran is in the works. We should re-impose tough economic sanctions against Iran as soon as possible, and it will be critically important for Congress to vote on any nuclear deal. We need a deal that truly stops Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, and failing to do so would be disastrous."
