By Congressman David Price -
Mr. Speaker, today we are asked to vote for a fourth time in two months on legislation to provide funding for the ongoing military mission in Iraq.
On Sunday Congressman David Price addressed a gathering at Meredith College's Jones Auditorium for the annual North Carolina Holocaust Observance. He invoked scripture from Proverbs to express how we must honor the righteous deeds of our predecessors by "mak[ing] a better future for those who will yet inherit the earth." Below are his remarks as delivered:
By Congressman David Price in the Congressional Record
...House Resolution 24 would reauthorize the work of the [House Democracy Assistance] Commission. This is a body that was inspired by the work of the Frost-Solomon Task Force back in the early 1990s. We worked then with states in Central and Eastern Europe as they were emerging from communism.
Washington, DC – During House debate of the resolution authorizing the President to go to war in Iraq, Congressman David Price (D-NC) criticized the measure for providing the President with open-ended authority to use force unilaterally and preemptively. He co-sponsored an alternative resolution, which would have bolstered U.N. weapons inspection efforts in Iraq.
