Rubio and Hinson Introduce PRC Act to Reroute “Afghan Funds” to Counter CCP

Translated by: MOS Gourmet Team – Chevalier

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Representative Ashley Hinson (R-IA) introduced the “Prioritizing Readiness and Competitiveness (PRC) Act” on September 23, aimed to reroute the unobligated, appropriated funds related to maintaining a military presence in Afghanistan or supporting the Afghan government toward competition against the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL)

The abbreviation of this bill, “PRC”, happens to be the same as the abbreviation of the English name for the communist regime. The funds mentioned in the bill were originally used to maintain the US military presence in Afghanistan and aid the Afghan government. Now it is imperative to stop taxpayer dollars from being funneled to the Taliban regime.

Representative Ashley Hinson (R-IA)

The bill proposes to reroute the funds equally into three separate accounts: first, Defense Production Act Purchases Account to support domestic manufacturing and the supply chain resiliency that is critical to national security; second, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for research and development projects to strengthen the United States’ global advantages in strategic technologies; and, third, U.S. Navy’s shipbuilding account.

It is clear that Sen. Rubio and Rep. Hinson have taken a hardline stance in stepping up the efforts in national security against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The progress made by the Trump government cannot be wasted, and the US military capabilities in Indo-Pacific region must be strengthened even more to counter the CCP, and as put by Sen. Rubio, “We cannot compete with Chinese Communist Party unless we invest in American research, American industry, and American naval power.”
