“We have learned that there is some concern about our policy change because it is beneficial to some people here in some ways.So why don’t we find a way to work together instead, so we maintain a good policy, which we all agree is beneficial, while finding a way to create new opportunities for these American firms. There is always a solution like that, if you look for it”.
