Republican Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX) is introducing a measure that would halt federal funds from going to China until the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) reimburses the U.S. for the trillions spent on coronavirus relief.
The “China Lied, People Died Act” would stop federal funds from going to China until the communist regime pays America back for the trillions spent in the form of coronavirus relief due to the virus that originated in Wuhan.
Speaking to Fox News Digital, Nehls said, “My first order of business this Congress is holding China accountable.”
“The Chinese Communist Party is singlehandedly responsible for the loss of a million lives in the United States and causing one of the worst economic disasters in the history of our country,” he continued, explaining that the GOP majority must work to force the CCP to “pay back the $4.6 trillion in Congressionally appropriated funds, as well as the $16 trillion of American taxpayer dollars that resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is also listed on the bill:
The bill comes on the heels of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announcing members of key committees moving forward — two of which will focus on issues related to China as well as the origins of the Chinese coronavirus, respectively.
