Rockford Register Star: LETTER: Kinzinger is leading on China
Below is a letter to the editor by Cmdr. Allen Murphy, retired U.S. Navy, of Rockford, Illinois.
These past months have again reinforced the need for us to elect good government servants. We are fortunate to have one in U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon. The congressman and his staff, always professional, have been especially informative in this COVID-19 crisis, with the congressman sponsoring frequent telephone conferences to listen to his constituents’ concerns.
According to recent press releases, Kinzinger has been selected to serve on the China Task Force. A select committee of house members that will work together in addressing the threats posed by the Communist Party of China.
A former U.S. naval aviator, I have had first hand experience observing the Communist Chinese using any means necessary to exert their influence in the world at America’s expense. The fact that we have mistakenly allowed almost 80% of our medical supplies to be dependent on the whim of a Communist Maoist president, elected for life, should concern every American. The fact that the basic drug penicillin is no longer made in America should be a wakeup call for all.
I hope and pray that Kinzinger and every member of the House Select Committee China Task Force will be successful and bring our medical supplies and with it jobs back to the U.S. I want to see more “Made in America” labels on my goods. We need more servant elected officials like Adam Kinzinger.
— Cmdr. Allen Murphy, U.S. Navy, retired, Rockford
