U.S. "Trade" Policy & "GamePlan" => "oh-well ... SemiConductors are not important".

"SIA called for new U.S. tax and economic incentive policies to boost chip manufacturing and R&D".... whcih is when American Companies say they are "American Companies", please help us ... and then after the "American Companies" get the incentives (& bailout $$$ from U.S. Taxpayers) then they go back to Shipping U.S. Jobs Overseas and Hiring H1-B Workers for U.S. Jobs in the U.S.
