Buttigieg says Biden's infrastructure proposals would help supply chain crisis

Source: CNN

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Wednesday said President Joe Biden's infrastructure proposals would help alleviate issues in global supply chains that have slowed the global economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

"We are relying on supply chains that were built generations ago. It's one of the reasons why this entire year we have been talking about and working on infrastructure and are eager to see Congress to act to get this infrastructure deal through," Buttigieg told CNN's Brianna Keilar on "New Day."

Buttigieg's comments come as Biden's economic agenda remains stalled in Congress because of sharp divisions within the Democratic Party about the size and the scope of a package to expand the nation's social safety net.

The Transportation secretary, who is part of the Biden administration's Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force, told CNN on Wednesday that there currently are record levels of containers and other goods coming into US ports but there is more demand than the supply chain can support.

1. THIS...

...is PERFECT politics by the DEMS. From what I have been reading, supplies will be limited for goods, especially with the Christmas rush coming up.

Tie the infrastructure proposal to something real. Something that impacts our way of life. Mitch won't budge in the end, but Americans will respond and remember.

2. Probably one of the reasons that the Republicans really oppose it then.
