house Bill H. Res. 273

Should the House Affirm America's Commitment to Taiwan?

Argument in favor

The U.S. relationship with Taiwan is an important one, and it’s worth reaffirming through a formal House resolution.

Taiwan 🇹🇼 Remains A Firm Allie Of The USA 🇺🇸 And Needs Our Support. The U.S. relationship with Taiwan is an important one, and it’s worth reaffirming through a formal House resolution. I’m in full support of both the following House Bills: * H.R. 2002: Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019 * H.Res. 273: Reaffirming the United States commitment to Taiwan and to the implementation of the Taiwan Relations Act The U.S. relationship with Taiwan is based on shared values of democracy and respect for the rule of law. It’s important for the U.S. to deepen its relationship with Taiwan in order to afford Taiwanese diplomats proper respect and support Taiwan against China’s aggression. SneakyPete. 👍🏻🇺🇸-🇹🇼👍🏻. 5*5*19.....

Taiwan is a great ally. However, by law already support the nation. Not sure the reason for a resolution like this. Vote yes to reassure Taiwan.

Should affirm all of our allies. WH scares the shit out of everyone on the planet, not from force but from incompetency.

Argument opposed

There’s no need to formally reaffirm the U.S. commitment to Taiwan — continuing to engage with Taiwan is sufficient.

Our house must stop meaningless "resolutions". or "express support" nonsense. Do your job. Support Our President. Build Our Wall. Pass our budget.

I'm torn. These silly resolutions at least keep Congress occupied. "Idle politicians are the devil's tools..."

Stop pushing through pointless non-binding resolutions! Why does Congress have to affirm that the U.S. government is going to continue to abide by laws that it should be abiding by?

    If they want to be Taiwanese and not Chinese, they should have the right to do so. That’s that.

    Ummm....yes, Taiwan, much like Israel needs our support and they stand amidst countries like China—and in the Middle East, Israel—whose human rights and issues of democracy are despicable. And as far as I’m concerned, anything that sends a message to China that says, “You may be the bully on your block, but the US has Taiwan’s back; they are an important ally and trade partner,” works for me! Plus it’s bi-partisan; all good in my book!

    Taiwan is its own country. China thinks it owns everything around it. The sea as well as the land. Don’t allow Taiwan to become another Tibet. And about Tibet, let’s recognize Tibet as an independent country. China had no business there as well.

    We must remain committed to the Free Chinese Government on 🇹🇼 Taiwan! That is our ally since the 1930s. We should never have relations with any Communist government to include trade!

    Yes as it will send the people of Taiwan a clear message that we are with them. This will also send a message to China that they need to understand that we are allies of Taiwan.

    Taiwan is all that is left of what China was before the communist took over. Formosa (Taiwan) has always been our ally. China claiming Taiwan as theirs would be like the US claiming Cuba as ours. Proximity has nothing to do with it. Taiwan has never been part of communist China. Anything we can do to strengthen our ties and support is the right thing to do.

    We need to continue to support democracy where it still exists. Taiwan is my parents' motherland and I am grateful for the US Support of an independent Taiwan. I still have many relatives there. Thank you!

    Taiwan is a thriving democracy and deserves our support. The communist party took over mainland China but could not take the portion now known as Taiwan. We should not award aggression by giving them the rest. Support a strong Taiwan.

    Taiwan must feel like a ping pong ball the way they have been bounced back & forth with China. They need to know we are here for them.

    It’s not necessary and will piss off China when we are trying to get out of this trade war. How about we don’t poke the bear when we are trying to get them to agree to things that they don’t want to agree to.
