Elizabeth Warren has a new campaign ad that praises China for all of its infrastructure spending. So basically her message to voters is that the problem in the United States is we just aren’t communist enough. Maybe Warren should move to China and try running for office over there. She can tour the empty cities and ride the unsafe trains.
Surely the woman who foreshadowed President Obama’s infamous “You didn’t build that” remark calling for more spending on infrastructure is no more news than Barney Frank calling for gay marriage. True enough, but what sets this Warren ad apart from her typical line is her unfavorable comparison of the United States‘ infrastructure spending to China’s infrastructure spending.
“Our competitors are putting people to work, building a future. China invests 9 percent of its GDP in infrastructure. America? We’re at just 2.4 percent,” Warren says in the ad. “We can do better.”
