Were members of Congress born yesterday?
To The Herald-Whig:
Yesterday's news was just that. Yesterday's news.
News that uniforms worn by U.S. Olympic athletes in the upcoming London Olympics are made in China is drawing strong reaction from leaders of Congress. The U.S. Olympic Committee agreed to use the Ralph Lauren designed uniform. Why should they be amazed at this?
Here are some of the comments made Thursday: Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, said, "The Olympic Committee should be ashamed of themselves." House Speaker John Boehner said of the Olympic Committee, "You would think they would know better."
Listen, if members of Congress were doing their job, they would have known that this kind of news has been going on for a long time now and they are the reason for it. The Chinese didn't just start making goods we buy in this country. I have been complaining about American businesses outsourcing their goods to China for years now. So for these politicians to be in an uproar over the U.S. Olympic jersey being made in China is just a show by them that they "really care" about America.
My God, were they born yesterday? Look everywhere and you will see the tag "Made in China." It is so bad that I received in the mail a Wounded Warrior Project Magnet because I donated some money to them, and on the back of it is the tag "Made in China." Makes you wonder doesn't it? Better learn Chinese.
