8:23 pm
tax increase on people making less than $400000.00 ish but it's time for corporate america and the wealthiest one percent of them just began to pay their fair share. fairly or i spoke to simone minute she's the executive vice president of the american chamber of commerce here in germany and i asked her how the idea of financing the president biden's plans by higher taxes for the rich and corporations was going down with business leaders what are you just as i write even in the u.s. people are and companies say they are not scared to bolotnaya text to speak with the same time we see huge investments in the infrastructure in the u.s. and that is good for corporations that is good for the people. i mean that also helps our members on both sides of the atlantic because that means prosperity in the u.s. where it definitely also in german companies will. some impact now
8:24 pm
