Joe Biden said he “100 percent” supports a national ban on plastic bags.
Here’s the key exchange:
Voter at town hall: “When I go back to Kenya, we don’t even use plastic bags or plastic papers. It’s not allowed, because we are trying to clean the ocean. And I think here in America, we are not trying to do that, to support the environment. And so, what’s your view? I mean, what’s your focus? Because in Kenya, we are trying to clean the environment. No plastic bags, you go with your own bags.”
Biden: “Well I agree with you 100 percent. We should not be allowing plastic. And what we should do is phasing it out.”

Biden made the remarks on Jan. 2 in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Biden’s left-wing arrogance has been on display recently:
-He said coal miners should learn to code.
-He threatened to “eliminate” vaping products for adults.
-He threatened to “get rid of the Trump tax cut.”
-He wants to impose a carbon tax on the American people.
-He wants to double the capital gains tax rate, to a rate of 40%.
The few states that have banned shopping bags are blue states with some of the highest taxes and most onerous regulations — states like California, Connecticut, and Hawaii. Experience from these far-left states shows the bans do not reduce litter. Biden wants to impose the failed blue state model on the entire nation.
