Blackburn Statement on Sale of A123 to China


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today said the following on the approval of the A123 Wanxiang sale:

"Just eight days ago, President Obama stated in his inaugural address that 'we cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries.' I could not agree more, which is why it disturbs me that the administration would approve the sale of A123 to Wanxiang," said Blackburn.

"What's changed in the last week? Actions speak louder than words and this is a clear cut example of a time when President Obama needs to step in and protect our national security interests. We cannot afford to have technology that is used in our drones and Navy SEAL delivery systems end up in the hands of the Chinese government. Especially as this administration has a new Asia pivot defense policy which will put our special forces units in China's backyard."
