House Condemns China, ‘Testing Us And We Did Not Rise To That Challenge’

  • House voted 419-0 to condemn China’s weekend balloon assault over the U.S.
  • Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) said he was dissatisfied with why the administration didn’t shoot it down much earlier. “Unfortunately, I left the administration’s briefing with more questions than when I went in,” he said in a statement. “It is completely unacceptable and infuriating that the Chinese spy balloon was allowed to hover over Montana and our missile bases to begin with and was then allowed to travel across the entire United States before it was brought down.

  • Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) said, “They’re testing us, and we did not rise to that challenge.” Added, “We have to up our game and mitigate the threat to our own people. Americans deserve better.”
