He is the unquestioned leader in the US Senate on nuclear disarmament, at a time when the US and Russia are tearing up the few remaining arms control treaties. For years, Markey has championed legislation to cut our insane nuclear weapons arsenal and to put controls on their use. Now, he a leader in the efforts to prevent war with Iran.
