Paste Trumpian slogans on Obama-plus policies

“Make it in America,” “Buy American,” “Stand up for America”: Those aren’t President Trump’s campaign talking points, but Joe Biden’s.

The Democratic candidate unveiled his economic platform Thursday, saying, “When the federal government spends taxpayers’ money, we should use it to buy American products and support American jobs.”

This, from the man who voted for NAFTA in 1993 and boosted the Trans-Pacific Partnership as Barack Obama’s vice president.

Now he wants to spend $400 billion over four years on having Uncle Sam “buy American,” plus $300 billion in R&D for progressive pet projects such as electric vehicles.

Biden’s campaign calls this “moderate” because it’s not everything Bernie Sanders wants, just the “largest mobilization of public investments in procurement, infrastructure and R&D since WWII.”

It’s an Obama-plus program — including lots of new taxes, on top of the $3.4 trillion in tax hikes he promised months ago.

His staff claims it’ll create 5 million new jobs, on top of recovering the tens of millions of jobs lost to the lockdowns. Hey, it worked under Obama … oops, it didn’t.

The pre-coronavirus economy was soaring, but Biden’s out to undo all the Trump policies that helped make that happen. You’re not supposed to notice, because Joe’s slogans sound like Make America Great Again. In short, he thinks the voters are fools.
