The battle is joined to stop our underwriting of the China threat

A compromised federal board has committed government employees to underwrite Chinese companies that help their government repress its own people and threaten ours. By so doing, the financial sector insiders who made this decision have challenged patriotic Americans – both the military and civilian personnel whose billions of retirement dollars in the Thrift Savings Plan are on the line, and the rest of us.

Yesterday, that challenge was taken up by a formidable group of national security leaders, legislators, financial players and China experts. At a briefing conducted by the Committee on the Present Danger: China, they warned that the TSP board’s decision is neither consistent with our country’s vital interests nor that panel’s fiduciary responsibilities to the Plan’s beneficiaries.

Review for yourself the compelling case for not underwriting the Chinese threat at Then sign the petition there to oppose it.
