It was a narrow margin.
But it passed.
America's Republicans in the Senate just kick-started a measure that will helpfully cut Beijing out of the supply chain for America's electric vehicle chargers.
Although, it should be noted that the liberals in America's White House are claiming that the measure will have the exact opposite impact.
Keep in mind though, America's liberals are liars, and they simply cannot be trusted.
They do not operate within the guidelines of honor and truth and justice. Instead, they operate by doing whatever will be best for them and only them.
There are only a few of them that should be allowed to lay their head on the pillow at night and feel good about how they voted on this particular measure.
Democrat Sens. Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, John Tester of Montana, and Kyrsten Sinema (actually an independent now) of Arizona decided to side with Republicans on the issue.
The only Republican to vote against was Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky.
America's White House quickly pledged to veto the resolution that was sponsored by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida.
"If we’re going to spend $5 billion of taxpayer money to build electric vehicle charging stations in the United States, it should be made by Americans, in America, using American products," Rubio said during arguments on the floor of the Senate.
Sen. Tammy Baldwin, a Democrat from Wisconsin, tried to scare colleagues into voting against the measure, saying:
If you eliminate this rule, as the Rubio resolution would do, it would remove all Buy America restrictions for EV charger purchases, allowing federal taxpayer dollars to buy chargers from China.
The White House stated that "If enacted, S.J. Res. 38 would weaken Buy America requirements by reverting to FHWA’s general waiver for manufactured products, allowing federal dollars — including $7.5 billion from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law — to be spent on chargers made in competitor nations like the People’s Republic of China."
