Rep. Jake Auchincloss (D-MA) told a Jewish Insider podcast that he believes any nuclear agreement with Iran should only be submitted as a treaty. This would be a sharp reversal from 2015, when President Obama and a strong minority of Congress sealed the deal and protected it from sabotage. Demanding the agreement be submitted as a treaty is not necessary, as the President has the power to negotiate political agreements, and has long been a rallying cry for warhawks eager to sabotage diplomacy with Iran.
Who will Rep. Auchincloss side with? Warhawks like Tom Cotton and Marco Rubio who have long sought to destroy the JCPOA and start war with Iran? Or President Biden as he seeks to protect U.S. interests by restoring the nuclear agreement? Tell Rep. Auchincloss not to side with warhawks and to retract his statement.
Step 1: Pick a time before 5 PM ET to call.
Step 2: Dial (202) 225-5931 to connect with Rep. Auchincloss’ DC office.
Step 3: When you connect with the office, whether it’s with a person or the voicemail, make sure to say your name and that you are a constituent of Jake Auchincloss. Here’s a sample script:
“My name is [your name] I am a constituent from [your town] calling to demand that Rep. Auchincloss retract his remarks to the Jewish Insider podcast saying he believes a nuclear agreement with Iran should only be submitted as a treaty. The JCPOA struck in 2015 was a political agreement, which a minority of Democrats protected from Republican sabotage. Hawks in Congress like Marco Rubio and Tom Cotton have long demanded the Iran deal be a treaty for one reason: to kill the agreement and pave the path to war with Iran. So I’m shocked that Rep. Auchincloss appears to be siding with them. Can I count on Rep. Auchincloss to retract his remarks, release a statement highlighting his support for peace and diplomacy with Iran,and instead support President Biden’s pledge to restore the JCPOA?
