#1 Why do I smell a boondoggle in this? boost government purchases from U.S. manufacturers *who supported Biden and the party*, according to administration officials.

FIFY. Obama 2.0
Remember the car dealers who got bailed out and those who did not.

#4 harder for contractors to qualify for a waiver and sell foreign-made goods to federal agencies

The last Federal projects I worked on (2002-2017) had 'Buy American' only for steel, thanks to the unions. Only steel needed a waiver.

Other than that, contractors strive to provide the cheapest product that meets the specifications. They ain't trying to unload cheap CCP stuff.

More gaslighting.

#5 Does that mean goods actually manufactured in the US. Or good imported in to the US by cronies and then sold to the government at inflated prices?
Asking for a friend.
