Excerpt from the interview:
“I’m thrilled that Republican Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas, who has been a senator for 30 years, is my lead co-sponsor in the Invent and Manufacture in America Act, which would increase the amount of the R&D tax credit received by American manufacturers that make here things that they invent here.
“Virtually every American now has a smartphone, but most of the details of the smartphones—the operating systems—are developed through American R&D, but virtually every one of them is manufactured outside of the United States. This is a step toward more ‘Made in America.’”
