Biden Admin Efforts Ease Supply Chain Problems Ahead of the Holidays

President Joe Biden is getting America back to work, and his decisive decision-making is easing the supply-chain bottleneck. Thanks to the Biden Administration and congressional Democrats, companies and CEOs across the country are assuring Americans that store shelves will be filled in time for the holidays.
