McHenry votes against job creation investment

As usual, Rep. Patrick McHenry says one thing and does another. He says he's for creating jobs but votes against job creation. Last week, he voted NAY on the CHIPS Act, an investment of $52 billion to boost chip manufacturing in the US.

"Over the last few decades, semiconductor plants have shipped factories and jobs overseas, primarily to countries like China, to cut down on manufacturing and shipping costs. The CHIPS and Science Act is the Biden administration’s bet to incentivize chipmakers to reverse course and build fabs in the US." Read the full article here.
