New House Republicans are Ready to Tackle China
Last fall, concerns about lost U.S. manufacturing and a rising China proved to be key issues for voters. Now it seems that some of the new crop of Members of Congress are taking up the issue quite readily.
U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) has released a letter demanding that U.S. Trade Ambassador Ron Kirk file a complaint with the World Trade Organization (WTO) against China over unfair trade practices regarding export restrictions on rare earth oxides and metals. Coffman has sent copies of his letter to every member of Congress.
