Earlier today, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04), Ranking Member on the Financial Services Committee’s Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee, released the following statement regarding her support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA):

“Despite numerous attempts by both House and Senate Republicans to derail the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, it is clear that the historic nuclear agreement with Iran will move forward with U.S. support. Because of this landmark deal, we now have the capacity to significantly reduce Iran’s stockpiles of enriched uranium and block them from producing weapons-grade plutonium. More importantly, this agreement prevents Iran from acquiring the material needed to develop a nuclear bomb within the next three months.

“Thanks to this comprehensive agreement and President Obama’s leadership, we are choosing peace over military intervention. I commend my democratic congressional colleagues for considering this deal on the merits, especially in the face of baseless speculation, fear mongering, and scare tactics from those who sought to scuttle this important diplomatic achievement.

“Now begins the hard work of implementing the deal and ensuring Iran’s compliance with its rigorous requirements. I take pride in knowing that the U.S. will now be able to join our global partners at the table in this key phase to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.”

  1. Paul says:

    This agreement offers no protections against Iran developing and building nuclear weapons.

  2. Terry Ott says:

    I imagine my elected Congressional Representative, Ms Moore, has areas of expertise. Everyone does. But, I do wish she would abstain from blathering about things for which she has no background. Inasmuch as she invariably aligns 100% with Obama and the other Democratic power elite, she needs to say nothing until and unless she has her own ideas that vary from the party line.
