Eight Reasons Why Ending the Iran Deal is Stupid

I have been working for two days to try to put together a post that explains why Trump’s decision to dishonour our committment on the Iran deal is such a stupid move, and I have yet to be able to manage to say what I want to say coherently. However, when it comes to anything economic, my ‘go-to’ person is Erik Hare at Barataria, and tonight I found he had successfully accomplished what I’ve struggled with for two days. Not seeing much point in re-inventing the wheel when Erik has done such a great job, I am sharing his work with you. His explanations are concise and very understandable, and I urge you to take just a few minutes to read his excellent post. Thank you, Erik, for helping us all understand the total picture, and for your generous permission (given years ago) to re-blog!

  1. Dear Jill,

    This was the worst of the president’s decisions, so far. We need the good guys to win big time in November so that we can do a better job at containing/ limit any further bad policy making.

    Here’s the rub. I am convinced that he could not explain many of the programs that he is backing out of like the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, TPP, NAFTA, Paris Climate Accord, DACA, etc. He couldn’t tell you about the tax cuts bill.

    Hugs, Gronda

    • You are very right … he doesn’t understand any of it, but makes his decisions based on what he thinks will earn him kudos from his base, or what he thinks makes him appear “tough”. He is a grade-A jerk and needs to go before he destroys the U.S., not to mention the rest of the globe!
