House Republicans introduced a bill in February that targets the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) growing military aggression.

The Countering Communist China Act was introduced by the Republican Study Committee, and was called “the strongest legislation against the CCP ever introduced to Congress” by Oklahoma Republican Rep. Kevin Hern as it seeks to reduce trade “in areas critical to national security, including telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, and military technology.”

Hern added that “the CCP poses a greater threat to American sovereignty than any modern adversary,” according to the Washington Stand. (LEARN MORE: Experts Warn Of China ‘Smokescreen’)

Why Be Nervous Of China?

““[W]hen you see what China is doing, their economic prowess [is growing], Our GDP is $23 trillion. Theirs is approaching $18 trillion. … [T]hey’re building major infrastructure projects, taking over South America, moving up through Panama, Honduras, Ecuador. … [W]e’re seeing fentanyl come across our southern border, [and] all the precursors are coming from China and being manufactured in Mexico. … It’s coming into the United States of America to kill people,” Hern told Tony Perkins on “Washington Watch.” (LEARN MORE: China’s Stealth Invasion Of America Is Happening Now, Experts Warn)

“When you look at what’s happening with the human rights violations with the Muslim Uyghurs, a million [people detained in camps] and all the genital mutilations that are going on, [the] slave labor … 90% of our active ingredients for our medicines are made in China. … When you look at trade policies, [they] certainly [are] not fair at all. … [I]t’s insane what we’re seeing with TikTok — they’re collecting our data, and we’ve got to stop that. So this bill attacks every one of those issues and more,” he continued.

What Does The Bill Propose?

According to analysis shared online, the bill proposes the following stipulations (amongst many others):

  • “Restrict outbound investments into Chinese tech companies;”
  • “Place trade restrictions on Chinese military and surveillance companies;”
  • “Stop CCP entities from purchasing American real estate and farmland;”
  • “Stop American companies from investing in Chinese military entities;”
  • “Require the President to impose sanctions on Chinese Communist Military Companies;” and
  • “Prevent any Department of Defense funds from going to any Chinese Communist Military Companies”

“China is our largest trading partner, and we are their largest trading partner, and the only reason they have a foothold in America is because consumers in America are wanting cheaper products, and China’s been delivering them,” Hern noted. “And President Trump pointed that out with creating tariffs to give our manufacturers in America the foothold, the necessary opening to create products here that consumers want, and we need to listen to that. … I know it will be a different relationship under President Trump [than] it’s been under President Biden.”
