Sen. Blackburn has a great idea: China should forgive ALL U.S. debt as ‘repayment’ for coronavirus

Would China do this if Blackburn managed to get her legislation passed? Maybe

By Jon Dougherty @TheNatSent

(TNS) In the wake of China’s latest ‘gift’ to the world — another coronavirus — Republicans angered by Beijing’s efforts to cover-up COVID-19’s virility and danger are demanding some ChiCom restitution.



Not all of the ideas have been good. Some want to ‘sue’ China, believing somehow that an international court of law would be able to force a nuclear-armed Chinese government to honor whatever settlement was reached.



Others believe we ought to seize Chinese state property in the form of liquid assets and even cargo ships, which, of course, would most likely lead to retaliation and even war.

But one GOP senator, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, has come up with another idea that is essentially seamless: China should forgive U.S. debt and call it even.

Just The News reported:

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., is calling on China to forgive its share of the U.S. debt, which she says would be a “good solid step” toward “restitution” for the loss of life and economic distress that Beijing’s mishandling of coronavirus has caused America.

The virus started in Wuhan, China, and was first reported by Chinese officials in late-December. Some U.S. officials and others suspect China was late to make the outbreak public and under-reported the number of cases.

“We do know that there is a growing opinion among our colleagues that China needs to be, first of all, held to account for what they’ve done,” Blackburn said in an exclusive interview with Just the News. “Secondly, they need to pay for what this has cost in life and livelihood and suffering and what it has cost our economy.”

“China owns a trillion dollars or holds a trillion of our debt so waiving that would be a good solid step,” said Blackburn, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. “There are other things that we can also do to make certain that the message gets across.”

She adds that she’s spoken to a number of Chinese activists who “believe that the Communist Party was fully aware that they had an outbreak on their hands and they hid that for 51 days.”

Blackburn also said the ChiCom government was “slow” to turn over a sample of coronavirus so American researchers and scientists could begin working on a treatment for it.

“There was an ingredient that we needed for research on a possible vaccine, and China said we might not give that to you. So these are all things that point to their awareness that what they were doing was inappropriate,” she said.

Blackburn acknowledged that her proposal to have China forgive U.S. debt, if passed, would still require action from the Treasury Department, Just The News added.

“We haven’t talked through exactly what that way forward would be,” she said. “But we do know that there are more people that agree that China should be required to make some form of restitution for this.”

Would China do this if Blackburn managed to get her legislation passed? Maybe. Maybe not. But dealing with the ChiComs from here on out should be contingent on how they respond to their responsibility for advancing the spread of yet another pandemic created in the petri dish of a wet market.



And we’d be dealing from a position of strength: The No. 1 economy in the world and the fact that Donald Trump is our president.

I like it. Send over a virus - get out of debt. That was easy.
No more being slaves to the Ching Chong credit card company.
Who else do we owe ? Send us a funky bacterial flesh eating plague. We’ll settle later.

EVEN IF THEY DON’T AGREE TO ERASING OUR DEBT TO THEM, WHAT THE HELL CAN THEY DO ABOUT IT IF WE DECIDED “NOT” TO PAY THEM THE 1 TRILLION IN DEBT? SUE US? GO TO WAR OVER IT? I THINK THEY WOULD BE STUCK BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE. AND IF THEY DIDN’T FORGIVE US THE DEBT, HOW IS THAT GOING TO LOOK TO ALL THE OTHER COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD?
