U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), took great exception to Republicans who oppose the CHIPs-Plus Bill, which House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (D-Calif.) called “corporate welfare.”

“This is the first step towards an industrial policy in the United States of America. And it is time for us to quit the politics, stop trying to score political points. Stop putting party over country,” Ryan said from the House floor. “Lay down our arms. My God, if we can’t agree on this, what in the hell are we going to agree on? Rebuilding the manufacturing base. Good paying jobs. Union construction. Outcompeting China. National security. Come on. Let’s do this!”

“Let’s do it together,” he continued. “But we have a small group of people who have hijacked the Republican Party, and the leadership in this House on the Republican side is more concerned with defeating Democrats than doing something that’s best for the United States of America.”

Ryan, who is running for the Senate in November against Trump-backed JD Vance, doesn’t bother to explain how opposing the bill may help in the GOP quest to defeat Democrats, but the GOP leader offered a clue.

“This morning, the government announced what every American has been feeling for nearly a year: We are in a recession,” McCarthy said on Thursday, according to The Hill.

“The Senate passed a bill that took a small, discretionary program and turned it into a $280 billion blank check, including $79 billion in mandatory spending on corporate welfare to be handed out to whoever President Biden wants,” he explained.

“I’m a no on the Senate CHIPS bill that will come to the floor today. I was a no last week. I was a no last night. And I will be the first no on the board today,” McCarthy added. “I encourage all my Republican colleagues to join me.”

For the record, the bill passed with 24 Republicans joining with Democrats. The measure is now heading to President Joe Biden’s desk:

Talk about flipping the script, with all the focus on Hunter Biden’s dubious business dealings with China that may or may not involve the “big guy” in the White House, Ryan concluded, “So July 28, 2022 is going to be Black Thursday, the day the Republican Party has been hijacked and aligned themselves with communist China.”

China is a leading supplier of computer chips.

As for continued spending amid the recession and 40-year high inflation, the White House plays by its own set of rules in declaring what a recession is.

Doesn’t sound like a recession to me,” Biden said of the two consecutive quarters of shrinking gross domestic policy.

Spending is something Ryan is willing to do, having voted for Biden’s failed $5 Trillion Build Back Better bill, as the Ohio GOP was quick to point out in a tweet calling the Democrat “Lying Tim Ryan.”
