In this special episode, we sat down with Kevin Roberts, president of the Heritage Foundation, and Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz) at CPAC. Roberts touched on how to make the United States more competitive with China.

Roberts said, “We have allowed in the United States, our freedoms, our freedom of association, our relatively free lobbying laws to be used, not just in support of the CCP, but against our interests as Americans. And it’s crucial that this year, not next year, not next decade, this year, every conservative in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate recognized that threat and advanced legislation to that end.”

Biggs spoke about what China gets out of the Ukraine–Russia crisis and said “You may recall that it was quite some time ago, a good number of months ago, Xi said we will deal with the Taiwan issue after the midterm elections in America, that should have chilled everybody to the bone. In the meantime, we’ve projected weakness and lack of resolve everywhere in the world. And so I don’t know what Xi’s timetable is. I know he’s got generals that are pushing him to take it. I worry about Taiwan. And I also worry about the fact that we’re more interested in another nation’s borders than our own borders.”
