Restoration of US manufacturing capacity

Forgive what may be naiveté, but the strategy described in this article has long seemed so obvious to me that it surprises me that it doesn't get talked about far more, as one relatively rare thing that both political parties should be able to agree on. Public policy certainly can influence the course of economic development, and even as a pure security issue I would think that having a robust manufacturing sector would be seen as an essential goal going forward for our country. It seems beyond doubt that the US is far gone from the "sole superpower" hubris of the 1990s, and shifting foreign policy away from hegemony to cooperative harm reduction and conflict avoidance is also an obvious goal, but encouraging this kind of development seems to me to be absolutely essential.
