A new ad from the advocacy group 45Committee calls for Americans to support extending the Iran Sanctions Act sponsored by House and Senate Republicans.
The ad details Iran’s status as the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism that is responsible for the deaths of American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and, citing Washington Free Beacon reporting, has nuclear ambitions.
“The Obama administration’s Iranian nuclear deal gave them billions,” the narrator says. “Now, making it worse, the Iranian Sanctions Act is set to expire. We can’t let that happen.”
The narrator implores viewers to call President Obama and remind him “it’s never too late to do the right thing” and support the extension.
Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s (R., N.H.) bill extends the law through 2031, according to Reuters, and would require new sanctions on Iran’s ballistic missile activity.
The Iran Sanctions Act, which outlines trade, energy, banking, and defense sector sanctions regarding Iran’s illicit nuclear and missile activities, is set to expire on Dec. 31, when Obama will be a lame duck president. Senate Republicans and Democrats both want to extend the sanctions, but the parties have differed on the language and reach of their legislation.
Sen. Ben Cardin (D., Md.) said last month that he expected legislators to pass sanctions by the end of the year but warned of a partisan fight during the lame duck period. Cardin was one of four Democratic senators to oppose the Iran nuclear deal.
