Congressman Ronny Jackson calls CBDC trojan horse for privacy invasion.
He supports the CBDC Anti-Surveillance State Act to combat this threat.
The fate of the bill is uncertain as it faces potential challenges in the House and Senate.
CBDC Trojan Horse: US Congressman Ronny Jackson warns that CBDCs could be a Trojan horse for global elites, backing the Anti-Surveillance State Act.
US Congressman Ronny Jackson has expressed his reservations about the concept of Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), calling it a potential “trojan horse” for global elites seeking to wield more control.
CBDC: Trojan Horse or Financial Innovation?
In response to House Majority Whip Tom Emmer’s efforts to push forward a new bill related to CBDC, Jackson has thrown his support behind the fight against this digital currency.
A Central Bank Digital Currency is a TROJAN HORSE! The global elites want to use it to control YOUR freedom. I am a proud co-sponsor of the CBDC Anti-Surveillance State Act & thank you @GOPMajorityWhip
for getting this important legislation passed out of committee yesterday. September 21, 2023
Representing Texas in Congress, Jackson argues that CBDCs could be weaponized against the privacy of ordinary citizens. He goes further to claim that “global elites want to use it to control YOUR freedom.”
To counter these concerns, Jackson proudly announced his role as a co-sponsor of the CBDC Anti-Surveillance State Act, which received approval from the House committee just yesterday. The bill is now on its way to the House of Representatives.
Congressman Jackson’s Opposition to CBDC Surveillance
The bill introduced by US Congressman Tom Emmer aims to prohibit the Federal Reserve from developing a CBDC in the future. It also precludes any CBDC pilot programs before they are even proposed. Emmer emphasizes the importance of protecting privacy, individual sovereignty, and free market competitiveness when discussing CBDCs.
While the fate of the bill’s approval in the House remains uncertain, its prospects in the Senate are even more doubtful. The Senate majority is held by Democrats, and their stance on the Republican-introduced bill may differ significantly. The debate surrounding CBDCs as a potential trojan horse for global control continues to intensify on Capitol Hill.
