Cramer calls on U.S. to build factories to address chip shortage, unemployment

"As the pandemic gradually draws to a close. We've still got to national emergencies that we had to talk about a man money. A horrendously high unemployment rate and the semiconductor shorts is causing major problems for us manufacturing and competitiveness. We need more chips and we need more jobs so why. Kill two birds with one stone. It's time for our government to invest in building the biggest and best complex of semiconductor foundries. That's the factories in the world. And we can do this now. This kind of initiative went out of style decades ago but we know it works because the government just did it with operation warp speed the co vaccine program that got us to trick vaccines in less than a year. Were on a roll. Let's keep it. I don't need to explain. Employments national emergency but what south with the massive government back semiconductor foundry pro. Okay we just heard from general motors. They have all these new indian vehicles but they simply can't make them because they're sending books shortage and modern cars require a lot of tech ford said the same thing could cost them one to two billion this year bleed. You're gonna start hearing about this shortage. Constantly dan we the us really havoc with all sorts of industries and making us less competitive and perhaps even hostage country hostage to a bigger chip customer. The pr see. We got to get ahead of this. Now some of this shortages natural thanks to cova. We've got millions of new homes. That require a lot. Har- we're eating these chips like doritos at halftime. But some of you thanks to globalization are sitting been able to outsource their manufacturing most couple of huge asian operators taiwan's semi which is now the biggest samsung. These are both incredible mazing. Well run companies but they also get so production capacity that they have they hit the entire world including demand from china that hits american companies extra hard because new of our businesses run on just in time ordering. They don't want to sit in a lot of extra components it just by the chips when they need them. That's a quick way to make money save money until it's a shortage. Now that's where we find ourselves. Our companies can't get enough chips because there's not enough. Production were wide and that lack of chips is hurting all sorts of manufacturing including the formation. Gm and ford now. There are two ways to approaches. We can throw up our hands and baked samsung taiwan semi to build more plants. That's been our strategy or anywhere for that matter or we can roll up our sleeves. Like operation warp speed. Remember today when everyone get tested raw. Got javert here can roll up our sleeves and get this job done ourselves. If we're supposed to be the most powerful country in we'd be able to manufacture semiconductors for heaven's sake it's our industry so let me tell you what needs to happen. You might not know it. But america's best tech industry the most intellectual property that is anywhere in tech is in the semiconductor capital equipment space. That's lam research. Kelly tinker applied materials. They had machines that we need to make chips meaning while building gigantic simtek foundries can put more people to work and just about any other research project much more than a much than highway than a bridge. Why stop at roads and bridges and we re establish yourself as a whole new kingpin in manufacturing industry that used to dominate. And hey biden's pick for commerce secretary gina raimondo. She was a venture. Capitals governor of rhode island. I got into politics. She'd be the perfect champion for this project. We can take advantage of low interest rates to issue fifty year semiconductor savings bonds to raise the money for this project partner up with the private sector then. These businesses can pay back. uncle sam. Production gets rolling or chips. Defense ships all sorts of internet of things. Chips should be able to make this stuff domestically in the best in the world. Honestly it's insane. We outsource our semiconductor manufacturing to taiwan south korea. When they're within spitting distance of our biggest wattle china. I love taiwan. I love south korea but we ever get into a shooting war with the chinese. For heaven's sake they'll be right in the middle of it. Hopefully it never comes to that but why would even taking that chance. How much would this cost. We know semi spending up to twenty billion to boost its output. And they're very good at what they do. Let's say let's let's borrow one hundred billion dollars in savings bonds to make the us more semiconductor independent over the next few years but we have to start immediately to alleviate the shortage people intensive national imperative blueprint ready customer for the suppliers. Ready to help so soon. To be secretary raimondo. You've been on the show. Let's get the loan just chip ongoing going and put an end to this chip.

"Tony basketball on your Monday morning. It's January the fourteenth in for Saint saint-pierre Ron returns tomorrow morning. Well, facing the inevitable prospect of being circled by states that have legalized recreational marijuana Governor Gina Raimondo will propose this week that Rhode Island do the same. She says shall do this with reluctance, she's resisted this for four years that she's been governor. But now things have changed mainly because all of our neighbors are moving forward with legalization. The proposal included in her budget plan for the fiscal year, beginning July, I would create one of the most regulated recreational pot industry's in the country. The governor said aimed at reducing the health and safety problems experienced in some of the other ten states that have approved recreational use in recent years, while President Trump is popularity and his approval ratings changing by the minute. And of course, the government shutdown has changed law that let's find out. What's happening? We say good morning to Fox News is Rachel Sutherland. And good morning. Rachel. Hey, good morning. Happy monday. Well, yeah. And here we are in day twenty four with no end in sight where we're in uncharted territory. The US has never been here before with the government shutdown this long, and and we're seeing that Republican Senator Lindsey Graham that board with some kind of solution in that he would want to keep the government open for a few weeks. Let the discussions continue. And he says the at that point. If they can't reach his voice, and he says, Mr President go ahead and declare a national emergency. So that's where we are today. And we're seeing hundreds of thousands of federal employees going without paychecks. So. Tough time for a lot of people. And when you look at approval ratings, you look at Trump, and you look at the base, obviously, this was the huge campaign promise. Lot of the base went along with this at what point do people start to get a sense that some of the Republicans in congress start to go the other way with their constituents again people can have a viewpoint. But once you're you know, you're not getting paid. And you can't feed your family and times are tough things can change. That's right. There are some Republicans have been breaking with the president on the shutdown, but they're kind of the usual suspects that he choosing Collins of Maine, Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. These are the folks who often break with the president. So you don't have you don't have Republicans yet in math saying, Mr President. Let's stop this. Basically Republicans are holding rank Mitch McConnell. The Senate majority leader has said he won't bring any legislation to the floor that doesn't have the hopes of a presidential signature. So. As far as the solution. I think that probably Senator Graham Lindsey Graham may have something here that may keep the government open for a little while we'll have to see it because this is really the first full week that congress has been back though, we turn today for the first full week since Democrats took control how and when we look at a, you know, a deal or concessions is there still do a lot of people still get a feeling that the president could just call the national emergency and not have to worry about congress. Idea. That's being floated around it is not without controversy. And it's not without historical precedent either. President Harry Truman declared an emergency in nineteen nine hundred fifty eastern to Korean war because the steel workers we're going to go on strike on either the strike, he addressed the nation and said, this is an emergency. We can't pull they needed bomb. He needed to stuff. So he he actually had a pretty good argument. And it went to the supreme court case called Youngstown, and then the supreme court slapped term and downers that you don't have the ability to take to seize control, the steel industry and the steelworkers ad. I think that the three days of striking. They weren't paying creases. This is this is decades and decades ago right to life is changed where to hold me different supreme court different the national emergencies act was passed in nineteen seventy six I believe so things have changed. But maybe they haven't taste that much because you have a precedent in law. That's why you may see the president. This hedging on doing this. Because the law may not be on his side. I'm not a lawyer. May not be on the side. And I think you raise a great point about this kind of being the first full week back for everybody. Maybe this will get to everybody together. And hopefully, we get this thing done because nobody wants to see this drag on any longer. Well, I don't think anyone does it. It's it's been tough, but you know, food inspection to stop so routine. Inspections. So if you're romaine is bad, you're not gonna know it. Stuff like that. It's it's if you don't feel it outside the beltway, you masive. All right. Fox's Rachel Sutherland, great stuff. Great information. We always great to hear from me. You have a great day. Rachel. Seven twenty. Now, let's go to traffic.
