WASHINGTON – Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06) released the latest installment of Ask Peter today, a frequent video conversation with Sixth District residents about issues important to them. In this segment, Congressman Roskam answers an email from Long Grove’s Gary Katz who asks what Congress is doing about the Iranian nuclear threat.

“I’ve led a bipartisan effort to urge the United States Senate to take up House language that has even tougher sanctions against Iran to drive them to the table. And here’s the point, we cannot have a policy that contains Iranian nuclear ambitions, we need a policy that prevents Iranian nuclear ambitions. The stakes couldn’t be higher.”
Check out my column in the Naperville Sun this week that further makes the case for why we should employ sanctions and use a firm hand as we try and find a peaceful solution in Iran.
Ask Peter videos are available to the public at roskam.house.gov, facebook.com/reproskam, twitter.com/peterroskam, and via press release. The videos are sent to constituents via e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter, depending on how they contacted the Roskam office.
