"The pledge, of course, is a political, not a legal, document. That means the repercussions of breaking it — or being perceived as doing so — will be political, too, said Jason Poblete, a former Republican staffer who worked alongside Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) in the office of McCarthy's predecessor, Rep. Bill Thomas (R). "The voters will decide when [or] if we broke them," Poblete said.

Tamargo was asked by Congress to explain the work and findings of the Review Commission and justify the necessity of funding these aging claims. Tamargo outlined the Review Commission's findings stressing the U.S.'s moral obligation to satisfy the outstanding claims of the U.S. nationals in Guam for the atrocities committed against them by virtue of their solidarity with the U.S. in World War II saying "the payment of these awards fulfills a moral obligation".

Howard Keating Show on SiriusXM America's Talk Interviews Jason Poblete

PDF Print
Tuesday, 10 May 2011 17:40

This Tuesday, May 10, 2011 at 5:08 (ET), Poblete Tamargo's Jason Poblete was interviewed on the Howard Keating Show. Poblete discussed how small and medium-sized companies can "Find their Voice in Washington, DC" including whether it made sense to engage the federal government to resolve trade issues. 

Poblete also discussed U.S. export control laws, economic sanctions, as well as the compliance challenges faced by companies that have U.S. government subcontracts with major defense or other high-tech companies that sell to the federal government. "There is a perception that the lower down one goes on the supply chain, the less important compliance with these regulations happens to be. It is quite the opposite," Poblete said. "An export control compliance plan need not break the bank and the costs of not having one, if something were to go wrong, could destroy a company," added Poblete. 

The Keating Network targets the 50 million Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the U.S. Since the financial crisis, many SMEs have closed their doors. The Keating Network's core mission is to be the voice for SMEs and help them grow through access to capital, education and networking resources. The Network is offering unprecedented access to capital to support the growth in the U.S. export business.

The Howard Keating Show is broadcast every weekday on SiriusXM Radio channel 158, "America's Talk" from 5:00PM-8:00PM (ET). Click on the SiriusXM logo below.
