What They're Saying

U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH)

"Further postponement of the Section 232 investigation will invite a growing deluge of steel imports into the U.S. and cause even greater damage to the U.S. steel sector.”

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer

"The sheer scale of [China’s] coordinated efforts to develop their economy…and to distort markets in China and throughout the word is a threat to the world trading system that is unprecedented.”

Dr. James Mulvenon, General Manager, Special Programs Division, SOS International

"...the number of examples where China has successfully avoided U.S. regulatory regimes to prevent technology transfer harmful U.S. national security are increasing. The Chinese are learning our system, identifying its gaps and weaknesses, and finding new ways to exploit American technology to their advantage."

U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX)

"By exploiting gaps in the existing CFIUS review process, potential adversaries, such as China, have been effectively degrading our country’s military technological edge by acquiring, and otherwise investing in, U.S. companies."

James Lewis, Senior Vice President, Center for Strategic and International Studies

“China’s goal is to end its dependence on foreign technology and overtake the U.S., as it has overtaken other nations.”

With 56 bipartisan cosponsors in the House, the Freight RAILCAR Act is an important bill that promotes a sustainable freight rail industry. #HR838 #RailSecurity #GreenEnergy

Everywhere #CRRC goes, from Canada to the U.S. to Mexico, they take family-wage rail manufacturing and supply jobs away from local communities. And that's nothing to celebrate.

Hey, @MBTA, here's a reminder to consider while you work out the problems with @CRRCMACorp: For every $1 billion in contracts awarded to a Chinese SOE, the U.S. loses between 3,250 and 5,100 rail manufacturing/supply jobs @masslivenews

Thank you, @USTradeRep, for the opportunity to comment on China’s continued breach of @WTO principles. #Freightrail manufacturers and suppliers have seen first-hand how China’s non-market activities harm our domestic economy and global competitiveness.
