reliance and an independent supply chain.
|First, for those who did not listen to what our President said (and this likely includes most of my Liberal Comrades), here's a quote from May 8th, 2018, that should chase away any doubts:
The question is, how did we come to this point? Well, that path was paved by way of a bill entitled "U.S.-China Fair Trade Agreement," passed and signed into law about 20 years ago. At the time, it set up a situation where our drug companies were persuaded to close their U.S. manufacturing facilities and set up shop in China.
Although it was a good deal for the drug companies because it lowered the cost of production, it turned out to be DOA (Dead on Arrival) for American citizens.
Shifting production to China has made millions for the companies and their shareholders but hasn't trickled down to U.S. consumers, who are still paying more than consumers anywhere else in the world for their drugs. "The drug companies don't care about the United States," Slane says. "They only care about profits."China has had an unfair advantage over our own manufacturers. Now that the land-of-the-dragon has shown its true colors, everyone is pointing fingers at one another. In my next blog post, I'll provide some history to the situation, which may enable us to see the players in our Congress who were remiss in their "national security" duties.
I'd love to hear from you. Please tell me your thoughts about China and the fact that they've been given a free pass for more than 20 years. Please use the contact us form, go to my Contact page, or use the comment box below. Thanks! --Al Colombo
