Urge the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to Address the Emerging Recycling Crisis Created by China’s 2018 “National Sword” Policy

We now know that on numerous occasions foreign actors sought to assist the Trump Campaign during the 2016 presidential election.  For example, the Trump family has acknowledged that Russia offered secret “dirt” on Donald Trump’s opponent in the 2016 presidential
election, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  Mr. Trump, Jr. was told Russia was offering him this information as part of its support for his father’s candidacy.  Instead of reacting with concern or alarm that a foreign power was trying to meddle in
a domestic U.S. election in violation of federal law, Mr. Trump, Jr. said he would “love” to get his hands on this information; he and his colleagues – then-Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort and Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner – later met with the
Russian representatives to do so.

In fact, the 2018 Election was the most expensive midterm election in U.S. history, with more than a projected $5 billion being spent.
With so much special interest money flowing through our political system, Americans rightfully wonder whether Congress works for them or Wall Street banks, drug companies, and other deep-pocketed special interests.

***LAST CALL*** Cosponsor the DISCLOSE Act of 2019

Each day more Americans are losing faith that their federal government actually works for them. More than 80% of Americans say they can’t trust Washington to do what’s right for them.  They feel like they their seat at the table has been sold to of corporate
