Paul Eckert: U.S. Congress Harsher on China Than Public

From Reuters, via washingtonpost.com:

The U.S. public and business community increasingly view China in a positive light, but Congressional staff hold strongly critical views of Beijing, according to a new survey on Wednesday…

A majority of respondents from the general public, business leaders and Congressional staff agreed that low-cost Chinese goods benefited U.S. consumers and that bilateral trade was good for both countries.

But the Congressional staffers were markedly more hawkish on the questions of whether China was an economic or military threat and whether the United States should intervene in the event China attacked the island of Taiwan.
