According to a recent report, the U.S. government sent $1.3 billion to China and Russia for various projects, including funding for gender equality initiatives and cat experiments conducted at a Wuhan lab. This revelation has sparked controversy and raised questions about the allocation of taxpayer money for such purposes.

The report highlights the allocation of significant funds to China and Russia for projects that some consider questionable or unrelated to the interests of the United States. The inclusion of cat experiments conducted at the Wuhan lab, where the COVID-19 pandemic is believed to have originated, has garnered particular attention and criticism. Critics argue that taxpayer dollars should be directed towards more pressing domestic issues and express concerns about the potential risks associated with funding research in foreign labs. This report has ignited a broader discussion about the transparency and oversight of government spending and the prioritization of resources in addressing national and global challenges.

The U.S. government has given Chinese and Russian entities at least $1.3 billion for various research programs over the past five years, according to an analysis released Wednesday by Republican Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst and watchdog group Open the Books.

The analysis revealed that millions of taxpayer dollars have been given to, among others, a Chinese software developer for military tech support, a Russian health insurance provider that has since been sanctioned and Chinese agriculture companies. And it showed the federal government gave $2 million, more than previously reported, to the Chinese state-run Wuhan lab studying bat coronaviruses.

“Washington’s continued spending is so out of hand, it is losing track of Americans’ hard-earned taxpayer dollars, but I am creating accountability for every penny,” Ernst said in a statement after releasing the report.
