Protecting American Jobs & Taking On China

More and more Americans are waking up to the threat posed by China and our dependence on a foreign adversary for our nation’s critical supply chain needs. China’s stated goal is to achieve global dominance. Hollowing out the U.S. economy and stealing our intellectual property is a key part of their plan. 

Making America more competitive and creating American jobs is a top priority. Last year, President Biden vetoed my bipartisan bill to stop China from violating our trade laws and dumping their cheap solar products – made with forced labor – in our market. Not only does this hurt American manufacturers and workers, but it also makes us more dependent on the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for vital energy needs.

  • Led a bipartisan effort to force the Biden Administration to abandon their patent reforms which would have benefited China and harmed U.S. inventors
  • Successfully led the Biden Administration to reverse course and restore Trump-era restrictions on Chinese components in our energy grid

  • Drafted a legislative initiative to block American research dollars from benefiting Chinese entities
    Authored legislative efforts to provide tax credits to U.S. companies that bring back manufacturing jobs to our shores
  • Introduced bipartisan legislation to create a commission to study U.S. supply chain vulnerabilities
