China-Loving Crooked Joe Biden’s Insane EV Mandate Policies Blasted By Fellow Democrats

March 20, 2024

Democrats Rush To Support Implementing Aggressive Tariffs On Chinese EVs




Rep. Haley Stevens (D-MI): “The more aggressive we can be, in my opinion, the better.”


Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI): “I really, really, really, really, really am going to be intense about ensuring that automobiles made by China aren’t going to get any benefit from trade agreements that we’ve got … So, you know, producing in Mexico and coming in here.”


Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH): The U.S. must block China from bringing “its government-backed cheating to the American auto industry.”


Brown: “We can’t wait for China to run this same playbook in the auto industry — we need strong rules, including but not limited to tariffs, to stop a flood of Chinese electric vehicles that threaten Ohio auto jobs.”


Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI): “Michigan workers can outcompete anyone on a level playing field, but the artificially low price of Chinese EVs could rig the game & jeopardize our national security. We're urging the Admin to raise tariffs — and protect American manufacturers & consumers.”


Sens. Gary Peters (D-MI), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), and Sherrod Brown (D-OH): “Artificially low-priced Chinese EVs flooding the U.S. would cost thousands of American jobs and endanger the survival of the U.S. automotive industry as a whole. To bolster American manufacturing and protect the domestic EV transition, USTR must move immediately to maintain or increase Section 301 tariffs on Chinese EVs.”


Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Bob Casey (D-PA): “These tariffs are essential to level the playing field for American workers to compete and counter unfair trade practices by China.”


Reps. Mike Gallagher (R-WI), Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL), Harley Stevens (D-MI), and John Moolenaar (R-MI): “It is critical that tariffs on PRC automobiles not only be maintained but also increased to stem the expected surge in PRC imports… The trend of shifting production from the United States to the PRC underscores that the current tariff level on imported vehicles from the PRC is insufficient.”


Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV): “If we’re ever going to get this industry up and running and be self-sufficient in North America, then we have to make sure they can’t dump on us. Right now, we’re about ready to put our whole eggs in one basket, thinking EVs are the way to go, and we’re going to be absolutely so taken advantage of, to the point to where we’re going to be held hostage by the foreign supply chain that China has a grip on.”


Manchin told Katherine Tai, whose office can impose tariffs: “We depend on you all to crack hard and crack them down as tight as you can.”
