WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Neal Dunn, M.D. (Florida-02) released a statement following his recent appointment to the House Select Committee on the Strategic Competition between the U.S. and the Chinese Communist Party, led by Chairman Mike Gallagher (Wisconsin-08).
“China is a foreign agitator and a serious threat to the United States and our allies. Overreliance on imported medical supplies from China compromises national security, the stability of our healthcare system, and the security of our nation overall,” said Congressman Dunn. “Biden administration policies have only liberated and emboldened China. Speaker McCarthy is correct: the danger posed by our dependence on China is dire. I’m honored to be appointed to the China Select Committee in addition to my role on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. I look forward to working with my colleagues to hold the CCP accountable.”
During the 117th Congress, Congressman Dunn received an appointment to the Republican China Task Force, a group designed to probe the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) coverup of the origins of COVID-19, explain how to protect our supply chains, and ensure adequate resources for our military and diplomats.
