STATEMENT: Brooke Rollins on the CHIPS-Plus Bill

July 21, 2022

Washington, D.C. - Today, the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) released the following statement from Brooke Rollins, AFPI's President and CEO, on the wasteful CHIPS-Plus Bill:

“It’s no wonder that our national debt is over 30 trillion dollars with policy proposals like this. The CHIPS-Plus Bill is a massive 250-billion-dollar government spending spree that favors special interests at the expense of American taxpayers. This bill wastes billions of dollars on an already bloated bureaucracy and hands out corporate welfare to companies who don’t need it – all with money we don’t have. Worst of all, this ‘watered-down’ version does not ensure that vital chip manufacturing supply chains will be returned to the United States from China.

Instead of more wasteful spending and corporate welfare, Congress should increase U.S. manufacturing competitiveness through the successful pro-growth policies of the Trump Administration that helped all businesses thrive.”
