On Wednesday, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) joined the bipartisan Taxpayers and Savers Protection (TSP) Act, which would ban the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board (FRTIB) from steering federal retirement savings to China. The Thrift Savings Plan is a retirement and investment plan for federal employees and members of the military.

“The Chinese Communist Party and our adversaries in Russia, North Korea, and Iran must not be permitted to profit from the retirement accounts of our military personnel and government employees.  I won’t sit idly by as U.S. dollars bolster communists and dictators,” said Senator Ernst.
