Tom Cotton calls for the end of the dependence on China for pharmaceuticals -

Excerpts from article:

...China has come to dominate the world market for basic drugs as a result.

...Focusing on direct trade between China and the United States actually understates our reliance, because most of the active ingredients in drugs imported to us from countries like India also come from Chinese superlabs.

...As Rosemary Gibson, author of "China Rx: Exposing the Risks of America's Dependence on China for Medicine," said in testimony before the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission last year, if the CCP cut the world off from its pharmaceutical ingredients, "Military hospitals and clinics would cease to function within months, if not days."

...Dependence on China for basic drugs threatens our safety in a more basic way.

...That's why we've introduced a bill, the Protecting Our Pharmaceutical Supply Chain From China Act, to end our dependence on Chinese drugs and take back our ability to make medicine here at home.
