"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".

Tamargo also clarified that funding for these claims could be derived from monies confiscated from Japan, rather than U.S. dollars as "the funds are, in some sense, traceable to the funds derived from the postwar liquidation of the Japanese and German assets frozen at the beginning of World War II".
