(Bloomberg/Yahoo) — Add one more item to Joe Biden’s platform: No more plastic straws.

Plastic-straw bans have become a target in conservative circles where they are seen as evidence of an encroaching nanny state. President Donald Trump’s campaign even sells Trump-labeled laser-engraved plastic straws on its website, noting that “liberal paper straws don’t work.”
