Speaker John Boehner rejected the Iran nuclear deal reached by the Obama administration Tuesday because it "abandoned" all of the goals Obama promised to achieve if he were to come to an agreement with the Ayatollah.
The Speaker condemned the deal because it removed sanctions without verifiable proof Iran is complying and it does not prevent Iran from eventually getting a nuclear bomb.

"The deal that we have out there in my view, from what I know thus far, is unacceptable," Boehner said. "It's going to hand a dangerous regime billions of dollars in sanctions relief while paving the way for a nuclear Iran."
Boehner promised to do everything he could to stop the deal if the details confirm his concerns.
"This isn't about Democrats or Republicans. It's not a partisan issue at all," Boehner said. "It's about right versus wrong."
