Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) released the following statement on the America COMPETES Act.
“Communist China is stealing American data and innovation, ripping off our farmers, and manipulating supply chains. They are committing genocide against Uyghurs in Xinjiang and want to wipe Taiwan off the map.
“Speaker Pelosi’s answer is a behemoth, $325 billion spending bill chock full of Build Back Better provisions that would allow your money to line Communist China’s pockets. This shouldn’t be a partisan issue–it’s an American issue–and politicizing it at home plays right into their hand.
“We have to get serious, and be united, in taking on this threat to ensure the next century is defined by American values, not Communist China’s evil brand of authoritarianism.” -Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
