Why Are Leading Dems Joining GOP To Hate On China?


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Marcy Winograd about why leading Democrats are joining the GOP to hate on China.

There are exceedingly few pieces of legislation that Senate Democrats and Republicans can agree on these days and actually pass into law. Not the voting rights bill, or infrastructure spending, but often military spending, and, most recently, a lengthy bill to counteract the influence of China on the world stage. A massive 1,400-page bill called the “United States Innovation and Competition Act of 2021” introduced by Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer could have been written by Republicans. My guest calls it a “manifesto of China hate.”  

Read the article she just co-wrote an article in Salon.com with Medea Benjamin called Chuck Schumer wants to pump up Cold War with China — at the planet’s expense.

Marcy Winograd, co-founder of the Progressive Caucus of the California Democratic Party, blogger for LA Progressive, former congressional peace candidate. As coordinator of CODEPINKCONGRESS, she spearheads Capitol Hill calling parties to mobilize co-sponsors and votes for peace and foreign policy legislation.
