I hope everyone reading this will call and email their Senators and Representatives in the House and tell them to introduce or support legislation, ending free trade with China. We never had these problems when toys were made in Taiwan. We certainly didn't have these problems when they were made in America but at this point, I'm happy with returning production to Taiwan. Communist China does not deserve free trade status with the United States. They do not have the safety standards we have and it is impossible to enforce our standards over there. China uses near slave labor which is why it's so cheap to manufacture over there. Cheap manufacturing doesn't necessarily translate into cheap retail prices. Consumers have not seen a drastic price reduction in goods since outsourcing to China became all the rage. But, corporate profits sure have skyrocketed.
Congress has every right within the Constitution to impose trade restrictions. That's what needs to happen now. Please everyone: enough with the poisoned food, poisoned toys, dangerous tires and who knows what else. All of these sorry products are coming from Communist China who is using our dollars to prop up their military and aid our enemies in Iran and North Korea. Tell your Senators and Representatives to end free trade with China.

How about some of these companies do a really innovative thing and "Bring those jobs Home"!! I can hear the chants now...Bring the Jobs Home, Bring the Jobs Home, Bring the Jobs Home, NOW! Somehow I don't think that fits in to the bottom line thinking, but it would sure get some attention and support. Some of these empty furniture or textile plants in North Carolina could sure use a shot in the arm.
