Sen. Stabenow said the U.S. has “absolutely great opportunities” if it uses all of its intellectual capacity, talent, and resources. “There is no reason that we can’t have the President give the Queen a wonderful new electric vehicle with all of the components, including the battery and cell, made in America.”
Sen. Stabenow noted that Henry Ford once said that “what is right about America is that, although we have a mess of problems, we have great capacity—intellect and resources—to do something about them.”
That is where America is right now, she said. “We may have a lot of challenges,” Sen. Stabenow said. “But we have great intellect and great resources. Now is the time to put it all to work.”
