Biden Admin Fumbles $100M Factory, Boosts Dependency on China

In the latest blunder from the Biden administration, a factory in Baltimore County, Maryland, meant to produce critical medical supplies remains unfinished and idle, despite a hefty investment of nearly $100 million. This state-of-the-art factory was set to churn out rubber nitrile gloves, aiming to boost America’s supply chain independence from China in times of emergency. However, the factory has yet to produce a single glove, and the feds seem to be washing their hands of the situation.

United Safety Technology, the contracted company responsible for the factory, is struggling to complete the project without additional funds from the government. Meanwhile, China, under the Biden administration’s policies, has become the top supplier of rubber gloves to the United States, creating further dependency on foreign sources for essential medical equipment.

The failure to prioritize domestic production of critical supplies is a stark departure from the Trump administration’s efforts to ramp up manufacturing in the U.S. during the pandemic. While Trump’s administration allocated billions in contracts to boost American production, Biden’s team seems to have lost interest in supporting such initiatives.

As a result, China’s market share for medical gloves imported to the U.S. has surged, while American manufacturing languishes. The growing reliance on Chinese imports poses a significant risk to America’s national security and healthcare resilience. Despite the potential economic and security benefits of investing in domestic manufacturing, the Biden administration appears indifferent to the plight of projects like the unfinished factory in Maryland.

With the fate of the factory and its promise of job creation hanging in the balance, it’s clear that decisive action is needed to revive American manufacturing and reduce dependence on foreign suppliers. The Biden administration’s failure to support critical projects like this one raises concerns about its commitment to national security and economic prosperity. Let’s hope they get their act together before it’s too late.
