Democrats want to spend as much money to China as they possibly can, and who can blame them? They are playing to their base. And it’s bipartisan with Mitch McConnell and the vast amounts of money he gets from the commies that keep him happy.
But then again Hunter Biden is still king. They just don’t have time to waste on the great unwashed living in the United States. They no longer need their votes because they manufacture their own.
Rep Andy Barr proposed what should be a common-sense amendment to the 1.9 trillion dollar pork barrel filled with liberal wish list items. His amendment would have prohibited any of the $1,9 trillion dollars from going to China.
Now, why do you suppose the Democrats killed the amendment? The bill was co-sponsored by Republican Reps. Scott Perry (PA); Ann Wagner (MO); Jeff Duncan (SC); Michael Guest (MS); Jim Baird (IN); Brian Mast (FL); David Joyce (OH); Ashley Hinson (IA); and Bill Johnson (OH).
Barr said of his bill:
“The coronavirus, as you know, started in China. It was made worse by the Chinese Communist Party suppressing information about the spread of the virus and in no way should the CCP be able to further benefit from weaponizing the global supply chain and receiving the U.S. taxpayer funds.”
“My amendment ensures that none of the funding in this bill, and particularly none of the $10 billion dollars in the international affairs funding, goes to entities owned by the Chinese government or the CCP.”
“There is no reason why my colleagues should oppose them. American tax dollars should benefit the American people during a pandemic, not undermine the national security interests of the United States.”
Any relief bill should be targeted to strengthen American businesses and the American economy, not be used as a vehicle to funnel taxpayer dollars to the CCP. Democrats are continuing their soft on China policies by voting against this common sense amendment. I will continue working on the House Foreign Affairs Committee to reject soft on China policies and better position the United States to confront the emerging military, economic and technological threat posed by the CCP.
