Americans are funding Chinese Wet Markets where they cook and eat dog, cats, and wildlife ALIVE! WTF!

Washington Examiner:

A bipartisan group of lawmakers led by Sen. Joni Ernst will introduce legislation that would bar the spending of U.S. tax dollars at “wet markets” in China.

The Iowa Republican shared with the Washington Examiner on Wednesday her plans to propose the bill alongside GOP Sen. Mike Braun and Democratic Sens. Jeff Merkley and Joe Manchin when the Senate is back in session after it was reported that U.S. taxpayer money went to the controversial Chinese markets. The earliest known cases of the coronavirus have been traced back to a Wuhan market in China’s Hubei province.

“As Iowans, and all Americans, continue to battle COVID-19, we need to do all we can to ensure something like this never happens again. That includes preventing any more American tax dollars from going to unregulated ‘wet markets’ in China,” she said.

“While previous administrations should have been working to shut down these dangerous, disease-prone markets, they were subsidizing them with taxpayer money. That’s why I’m working across the aisle to prevent any more American tax dollars from going to China’s unregulated ‘supermarkets of sickness,'” she continued. “Whether it’s the lab in Wuhan or these repulsive wet markets, Iowans shouldn’t be footing the bill for either.” READ MORE
