Biden says he's open to shortening length of new programs

  Biden says he's open to shortening length of new programs HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — President Joe Biden says he would prefer to cut the duration of programs in his big social services and climate change package rather than eliminate some entirely, as Democrats struggle to win support from moderates by trimming what had been a $3.5 trillion proposal. Biden's comments on Friday, reassuring progressives on what he hopes will be a landmark piece of his legacy, marked his clearest indication yet on how he hopes negotiations over the bill will play out.

for the US President, beyond the need To work continuously as most US competitors do to route the products, this is the proof that we need to rethink the logistics chains. Joe Biden: "We should never have to depend on a single business, from one country or one person in the world. Especially when these countries do not share our environmental or work requirements. "

China is still targeted

Once again, it is China that is targeted. But anxiety is not only American. From Washington to the General Assemblies of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, the French Minister of Economy and Finance, Bruno the Mayor, shares these concerns and he has a solution: "Independence. Independence is the one that the President of the Republic wanted to build with the investment plan 2030, so that we are more independent on energy, more independent in nuclear, more independent on semiconductors, So that we are less dependent. "

Joe Biden does not say something else. It takes the opportunity to insist on the adoption of its giant investment plan, always blocked by the disagreements between elected officials of its own party.
