CONGRESSMAN VAN DREW ISSUES STATEMENT ABOUT CHINA-MADE MASKS BEING DISTRIBUTED TO EACH CONGRESSIONAL OFFICE
January 18, 2022 — Congressman Van Drew issued a statement following every congressional office receiving KN95 masks that were manufactured in China.
“The poor judgment and lack of awareness from President Biden and House Democrats is never-ending,” said Congressman Van Drew. “We are currently seeing hospitals across the country overwhelmed because of increased staff shortages, and a crippled supply chain affecting the availability of N-95 masks for our healthcare workers. Despite this, Speaker Pelosi thought it was appropriate to send hundreds of packages of KN95 masks to every congressional office. If that wasn’t bad enough, the masks are also manufactured and distributed straight from China. After all the information that has come forward regarding China’s lack of transparency concerning the origins of COVID-19, why are we handing out hundreds of their masks to Congress and staff? If Speaker Pelosi feels the need to supply each office with masks, why are we not making and distributing American-made masks? It makes absolutely zero sense. President Biden and Speaker Pelosi need to start putting the United States and its citizens first, and work towards strengthening our supply chain and stop making decisions that benefit our foreign adversaries.”
