Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., joined with Republicans this week to oppose the White House's nuclear deal with Tehran, saying that the agreement all but guarantees that Iran will have a bomb in a decade.

He also bemoaned the amount of cash that will soon flow into a country that the U.S. has designated as a state sponsor of terrorism.

"It is ugly," he said during a Fox News interview. "You've got the good, the bad and the ugly. The good is in the first year they get rid of most of their stockpile, they mothball two-thirds of their centrifuges."

"The bad is short-term, and that is they get their hands on $120 billion of their own money. The ugly is next decade, when they could have an enrichment facility of unlimited size, they could have centrifuges of unlimited efficiency, and under that standpoint they will be a threshold nuclear state," he added.

He repeated his claim that the easing of economic restrictions on Iran will undoubtedly open the door to "graft and corruption."

Fox News host Gregg Jarrett said, "Won't they also give to it terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah and terrorist nations like Syria?"

"It's clear that they have already been providing that aid, and they will continue to provide more," the congressman said. "The limitation on the aid there is more what are they able to physically deliver, knowing that they are subject to interdiction of their deliveries … Letting Iran get its hands on its own money is the bad part of this deal."

"On the other hand, two-thirds of their centrifuges, 95 percent of their stockpile is the good at the beginning, so there's good and bad at the beginning. It's ugly next decade," he added.

The deal announced Tuesday by the White House will see the United States lifting certain sanctions on Iran in return for a scaling back of Iran's nuclear program. Republicans and some Democrats, however, say Iran will not be forced to scale back nearly as much as it should.
