The National Institutes of Health has doled out nearly $46 million in taxpayer funds to 100 Chinese institutions in the form of subgrants since 2011 to conduct research into infectious diseases, drug addiction, mental health, and other scientific fields, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of federal spending data.
The National Institutes of Health’s ongoing funding of Chinese research institutions comes amid growing bipartisan concern in Washington over the fact that U.S. taxpayers foot the bill for research in a communist country that has violated international health regulations, stonewalled a proper investigation into the origins of COVID-19, and may be in violation of the Biological Weapons Convention.
Why are we giving an enemy millions? Especially when considering the country’s debt is in excess of 28 TRILLION dollars. That is irresponsible and in my opinion treasonous
