Rep. Gohmert Wants Congress To Strip All The Extra Stuff From Anti-China Bill

This is the bill that Pelosi might possibly push by July 4th, which, really, is not meant to pass. It’s meant to force the GOP to vote against it, so the Democrats can use it as a cudgel to bash the GOP as not wanting to help the U.S.A.

Exclusive: Louie Gohmert, Conservatives Urge Congress to Strip Amnesty, Wokeness, Climate from Weak Anti-China Bill

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and other conservatives urged Republican and Democrat leadership on Monday to strip provisions from an anti-China bill that would grant amnesty, promote woke values, and boost climate change regulations, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.

Reps. Gohmert, Greg Steube (R-FL), Doug LaMalfa (R-CA), and Doug Lamborn (R-CO) sent the letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), as the House and Senate are in conference hashing out the differences between the House-passed America COMPETES Act and the Senate-passed United States Innovation and Competition Act (USICA) Act.

The two bills, which were supported by many Republicans and Democrats, are aimed at increasing American competitiveness with China, especially in the areas of high-tech manufacturing, such as semiconductors, and artificial intelligence (AI). However, conservatives have derided the bill as a threat to national security and believe it would, ironically, “harm innovation.”

Congress seems virtually unable to simply put a targeted bill on the table, especially when it’s the Democrats in charge. Why do we need

  1. Any additional funding to the United Nations (UN)
  2. Any immigration provision that provides amnesty, allows for refugee resettlement, or otherwise increases the number of green cards for foreigners in the United States
  3. Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity (SOGI) language
  4. Language that would advance climate change goals
  5. Provisions without proper oversight

in it? These are unrelated. They’re wishlist material, that, if the Dems really want them, put them in a standalone bill. Democrats do not want it to pass. It’s a tool for the mid-terms, a way to demonize the GOP (without mentioning that the Democrats have been sitting on this for a while, and the time for the chips legislation was back in late 2020/early 2021) and deflect from the horrible record of Biden and the Dems.
