When public officials travel the country to make speeches and appear at local town meetings, voters should take this opportunity to ask them pertinent questions about important national issues. Communist China is becoming an increasingly important country, so here are some questions to ask public officials and candidates about Communist China.
- What will you do about China’s organized theft of our intellectual property and counterfeiting of U.S. products? China is the world’s top producer of illegal copies of music, movies, software, designer clothes, and medicines.
- What will you do to stop China from sending us contaminated prescription drugs (such as Heparin that killed 81 Americans), dangerous lead-painted toys for children, and seafood that is grown in filthy waters? What will you do about the poisonous drywall used in home construction that has destroyed appliances and copper wiring in hundreds of homes in Florida and caused headaches and coughs among the homeowners? What will you do to get our Food and Drug agents to inspect China’s manufacture of prescription drugs they export to the U.S.? If we are going to let China sell prescription drugs in our country, it’s our government’s job to make sure they are safe.
- What will you do about the fact that the Chinese artificially undervalue their currency up to 40%, subsidize their products sent to the U.S., and impose import duties against U.S. products that are 10 times higher than tariffs on their products that are sold in U.S. stores?
- What will you do about Communist China continuing to ship us steel products at below their cost because the Communist government subsidizes the production in order to destroy the U.S. steel industry?
Those are some good questions to ask Congressmen and candidates so they will know you expect them to stand up for American products and jobs.
