Matt Gaetz wants to make sure that none of the proposed economic relief in the COVID-19 stimulus bill will go to China-owned businesses.
After all, they got us into this mess, so why should we be helping them while trying to get out of it?
Gaetz is proposing a bill that would prevent China-owned businesses from receiving any aid from the stimulus bill or money appropriated by Congress in fiscal 2020, ensuring more funds go to American businesses.
A Republican congressman wants to make sure none of the proposed economic relief in response to the coronavirus pandemic is funneled into businesses owned by the Chinese government.
Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz introduced the “No CHINA Act” on Tuesday, legislation that would ensure no money appropriated by Congress in fiscal 2020, including relief funds used to prop up American businesses reeling from quarantine orders, goes toward supporting China, which has engaged in a blame game with the United States about the origins of the COVID-19 virus outbreak.
“China’s inaction, distortion of data, and outright lies have exacerbated the global coronavirus epidemic, and helped fuel its rapid global spread,” Gaetz wrote in a statement describing the legislation. “Under the ‘No CHINA Act,’ companies owned by the Chinese government will not receive any American taxpayer dollars from Congressional aid packages.”
The Senate has hit a rut in trying to pass an economic relief bill to fund small businesses and workers struggling as much of the country takes an extended break to slow the spread of the virus.

Thank goodness we have congressmen like Gaetz who are looking out for Americans first.
If it were up to Democrats, a quarter of this funding would go to China so they don’t think we’re “racist.”
