The US Senate finally passed a sweeping anti-China bill after months of delays.

The bill, which was backed by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, passed by a 68-32 vote.

As The Hill reports:

The 68-32 vote hands a victory to Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), who made the bill a top priority and was able to get it past several last-minute snags in a weeks-long debate that appeared ready to derail it multiple times.

The measure now goes to the House, where it faces uncertain prospects, as lawmakers there have offered their own measure. There’s talk of trying to drop part of it into an eventual infrastructure package.

But the measure marks a bipartisan win for the Senate ahead of what’s shaping up to be a summer of deeply partisan fights that will underscore the limits of what can get 60 votes, the level of support needed for most legislation to pass the 50-50 upper chamber.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) pointed to it as an example of how the upper chamber can work, though Democrats bristled after a handful of GOP senators were able to delay a vote before the Memorial Day break.

The bill will now go to a vote in the House.

I was being facetious. America, to the extent possible, should be sovereign, and not fret about foreign countries and their bellicose leaders. Our nation is quite capable of self-sufficiency, so we won’t need allies or resources from foreign countries. Globalists intend to dissolve our borders, and subordinate U.S. citizens to international, unelected administrations. Let’s send these people packing, and make America Energy Independent, Economically Vibrant and Sovereign.
