Washington, DC – Today, Congressman David Price (NC-04) gave the following remarks on the one-year anniversary of the Iran nuclear agreement, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). House Republicans took votes this week on the latest in a series of bills designed to undermine the deal.
The tragic events of recent weeks have reminded us yet again that the principle of “equal protection for all” remains an empty promise for too many Americans.
Good morning, and thank you all for being here today! I particularly want to thank Dr. Holden and RTI International, our guests from the research community, and my staff, Nora Blalock, Asher Hildebrand, and Lawrence Kluttz, for convening this timely discussion of an important topic on very short notice.
