Buying Chinese made American Flags

imageNo wonder Congress is held in such low esteem. Back in 1933 the Buy American Act of 1933, which, with some exceptions, required the federal government to buy American-made things but allowed flags with up to 50 percent foreign content to be classified as domestic-made. According to the Department of Commerce, China exported $2.5 million worth of American flags to the United States last year.

On Sept. 30, 77 years late, the House of Representatives passed the All-American Flag Act. Well, better late than never. Now, if the Senate (the graveyard of legislation) steps up, the federal government will be required by law to buy only flags entirely made in the USA, down to the last fiber.
