Donald Harlan says:

The current media based USA Government, likes claiming ownership of things that don't belong to them, making illegitimate business, selling things that do not belong to them, and buying things that actually aren't for sale. When I hear that they are going to invest in an industry, they would force an unrevealed company to sell stocks, or force a bunch of Government employees upon a company. Perhaps they need to be stopped ?

"Competitive nations that have hollowed out the industrial base and undermined our supply chain security". I'm sorry, who exactly did that? China didn't hold a gun to your head. US corporations did that, all facilitated by American politicians. Forming the "old fashion concept of cooperatives". Perhaps they should consult Marxist doctrine for advice. Geez, What's next? Central planning by gov't in the chip manufacturing… or state capitalism to counter China in Afrika? Oh wait…

Tom Drake says:

0_o Be a lil bit more discrete about it ya DF, because China fully plans on cutting them all off at or shortly before the onset of their plan to wage war against America & that's their ace in the hole buddy, so you may be inadvertently giving China an expedited launch date set before the time you can finish that very 'public knowledge' project! I miss the old days when bigmouths could go to prison or be executed for leaking intelligence to our enemies that they could easily use against us! Think before you speak on America's behalf before someone shoves a sock in it!

Mohmee Gaik says:

Price wise USA cannot compete with China. Or any products manufactured in China. So for USA to compete on this premis will lose out on price or quantity, speed.

Cristina Ximera says:

The cause of your calamities was the mutual reinforcement of Deng Xiaoping Reforms and Reaganomics, manifesting for you as a massive de-industrialization event. Now you are complaining about China … or in oter words, you are experiencing what Hegel called dialectics of master and slave (eventually the slave surpasses the master). We told you! You didn't listen. And now look at yourselves.
