MACUNGIE, Pa. (AP) - President Joe Biden has checked out the big rigs at a Pennsylvania truck factory and promised workers that his policies will reshape the U.S economy for the working class. It's a message clearly aimed at a group of voters who have drifted to the GOP.

Biden is highlighting new “buy American” rules that his administration is proposing, saying they would put new muscle behind an initiative that he says has had become a “hollow promise” in recent years.

The Biden administration believes the Democrats’ political prospects next year might hinge on whether Biden succeeds in reinvigorating a sector that has steadily lost jobs for more than four decades.
