1. It's about time. Good for Biden for stepping up to address the issue.

We may not be able to reach manufacturing independence and we may not want to try, but we certainly should have the capacity to provide for enough of our manufacturing needs that we aren't caught completely flatfooted again. Outsourcing has its limits.

Lobbyists for major industries, including healthcare, automotive, information technology and more, sent a letter to Biden this month calling for more federal funding and tax cuts as incentives to increase semiconductor manufacturing in the U.S.

Not so fast. There's a thing called supply and demand. The demand is definitely there. Cough up the supply or get out of the way for those who can. There's no need for federal funding or a tax cut to do normal business. Greedy jerks.
