Jacobs explains vote against bill dealing with China issues

Press release:

Congressman Chris Jacobs (NY-27) released the following statement after voting against the partisan, costly, and unserious America COMPETES Act that fails to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable.

“China presents one of the greatest national security threats our nation faces today and for the foreseeable future – that is why I proudly cosponsored the China Task Force Act that combined bipartisan policies into a comprehensive package to address the CCP’s malign activities and bolster our nation’s competitiveness. I also have been a strong supporter of the CHIPS Act, which supports the domestic manufacturing of semiconductors. Sadly, instead of addressing these issues head-on, the America COMPETES Act is riddled with unserious partisan policies that would funnel billions of American taxpayer dollars to China and climate change initiatives with zero accountability. If Democrats were serious about addressing the very real threat China poses, they would’ve kept on the bipartisan track of negotiating serious legislation, not a package that wastes more taxpayer money on unrelated partisan priorities the same week as the national debt hit a record $30,000,000,000,000.”
