Well, They Should

They’re to blame. So, yeah, they’re gonna get blamed.

Dems fear supply-chain blame – HotAir

Rep. Cindy Axne (D-Iowa), who has introduced a number of bills to address the supply-chain issue, plans to push House leadership to bring more related bills to the floor in the coming weeks, an aide to the congresswoman told Axios.

A bipartisan group of House members, including vulnerable Democratic Reps. Angie Craig (D-Minn.) and Colin Allred (D-Texas), sought to renew the Supply Chain Caucus last week, according to a Craig aide.

Craig said in a statement to Axios: “It’s clear that our reliance on global supply chains have left us unprepared to meet the demand that our economy is currently experiencing.”

Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.) filmed a video in her district, home to two GM plants that have closed intermittently because of chip shortages. She said working on legislation to ensure microchips are made in the U.S.

This has the smell of fear. I can’t imagine either of these Democrats putting up such bills if we weren’t in such dire straits and if they didn’t know they were going to be blamed for it.

Still, these ideas have some merit, and if they’re not exactly what I would do, they’re probably the best we can hope for from a Democrat Congress and White House. Can they convince enough others of their party? Time will tell.
