How to use unsound in a sentence?

  3. Lot Chakonza:

  4. Lindsey Graham:

    For a federal mandate to come about for measles or any other particular illness or disease you'd have to convince me it was necessary, but the question is, is there scientific evidence to justify a politician suggesting that vaccinations programs we have today are unsound? My answer is no.

  5. Eliot Engel:

    There's a reason the Obama administration and The Trump administration, at least before this point, never made such audacious legal claims. The assertion that Congress has authorized the executive branch to use force against Iran is unsound. A bipartisan majority of both houses of Congress have rejected that view in just the past few weeks through congressional findings, the administration's position is dangerous. It holds Iran directly responsible for abuses committed by armed groups under a new-fangled theory that United States would not want to see applied to our support for armed forces including the Saudi bombing campaign in Yemen and the Syrian Kurdish forces' treatment of detainees.
