Washington, D.C. – In case you missed it, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik joined House Republican Leadership in a press conference to discuss the Democrats’ America CONCEDES Act, which kowtows to Communist China and fails to protect American interests.
Below is a transcript of her full remarks:
This week, Democrats want to rush through their nearly 3,000-page America CONCEDES Act, a bill that caves to China and fails to protect American interests.
Democrats' pathetic attempt to deceive the American people into thinking they are standing up to China WILL NOT WORK.
Make no mistake, this isn’t a bill that competes with China—it’s a bill that is China First, America Last.
If House Democrats were serious about holding China accountable and protecting our competitive edge, they would have worked with Republicans to pass a truly bipartisan bill. But Nancy Pelosi has shown us time and time again that House Democrats have no interest in working with Republicans or being tough on China.
The Democrats’ CONCEDES Act comes with a $325 billion price tag and does absolutely NOTHING to sanction the Chinese Communist Party or hold them accountable for their malign actions.
At a time when America is dealing with crisis after crisis caused by Democrats’ failed Far-Left agenda, Nancy Pelosi wants to cater to China by lining the CCP’s pockets with your American tax dollars.
The America CONCEDES Act fails to address Communist China’s threat to our national security and fails to address one of our greatest threats of this generation.
