Write WI Representative Tiffany about his China Amendment

 

 

 

 

 

The Cold War on China intensifies. In the latest Appropriations Act, Republican Congressman Tom Tiffany of Wisconsin added a bill that would make it illegal for the State Department to use or create maps that depict Taiwan as part of China.

This would directly contradict the Shanghai Communique, a 1972 agreement signed by the U.S. and China that leaves it up to the Chinese people on both sides of the Taiwan strait to peacefully settle the question of Taiwan. With this amendment, Rep. Tiffany would undo decades of diplomacy and unnecessarily inflame tensions at a time when we’re close to another world war. Write to Rep. Tiffany to express your disagreement with his amendment!
