The call is coming from inside the House…of Representatives. And the Senate, too!
Taxpayer $ shouldn’t be sent to a dangerous Chinese state-run bio-agent lab that lacks any meaningful oversight from U.S. authorities & is run by adversaries w/ a history of lab leaks.
I led a letter w/ @RepMattGaetz to Senate & House leadership to ensure this funding is cut off pic.twitter.com/528Q05Qac4

Following WCW’s blockbuster investigation of wasteful and dangerous taxpayer-funded animal testing at China’s controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology, and prompt action by President Donald Trump to cancel the specific grants, over 50 Congress members are demanding the government stop shipping your taxpayer dollars to China for animal experiments.
American tax $$ shouldn’t be going to China’s wet markets. And they shouldn’t be going to China’s Wuhan lab either.
Today, I joined my colleagues in calling to end this funding & express my deep concern over past federal funding to the controversial Chinese state-run Wuhan lab. pic.twitter.com/ElTGEPSgj6

For years, American tax $ has gone to Wuhan, China’s state-run biological lab for dangerous & sloppy research. @realdonaldtrump is cutting those grants & I’m proud to join my colleagues urging leadership to ensure no #coronavirus stimulus funds end up at this notorious lab. pic.twitter.com/gx0CAH8Xzy

The WIV is run by adversaries with a history of deception about the causes and extent of deadly disease outbreaks.
Congress must follow in @realDonaldTrump’s footsteps and ensure no future funds are given to this notorious state-run bio-agent lab.https://t.co/OruPAzOQDL

I join my colleagues in urging Congressional leadership to ensure no COVID-19 stimulus funds end up at the WIV, China’s state-run lab in Wuhan. For years, U.S. taxpayer dollars have been given to Wuhan’s lab, and @POTUS is cutting those grants: pic.twitter.com/Ma140hWt5O

McSally, Gaetz Push To Ensure US Taxpayer Funding Of #Wuhan Lab Stops

Make your voice heard, too, by signing our petition to cut all government funding for the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Now more than ever, this funding must end. It is irresponsible and unAmerican for anyone in congress to try to continue to send funding to a laboratory that has caused a worldwide pandemic.
