Congressional Democrats Aren't Serious About Confronting China
Upon Democrats' release of their 'surrender to China' bill, I issued the following statement:
This bill proves what everyone knows. Democrats in Congress aren't serious about confronting China, holding them accountable for their trade commitments, or insisting China stop cheating America and other countries.
As President Biden sits on the sidelines while our competitors are reaching trade agreements that divide up the world's customers for their farmers, workers and businesses, Democrats are pushing a highly partisan bill stuffed with more Washington control over the economy and ideological pandering to Democrats’ political base, which is angry at them for failing to deliver on a radical Socialist agenda.
I'm convinced there is a smart, bipartisan path forward on trade and on China, but this isn't it.
