Re:Made in USA Policy Comment
I am writing in complete opposition to the felonious misrepresentation you at the FTC are trying to impose upon the American people. I do not understand your attempted misguided interpretation of "Made in the USA".
If manufacturers cannot find parts to make certain products within the US, we should all be aware of this. If the government has made manufacturing so burdensome that we must resort to finding suppliers outside the US, why should we cover it up with this 75% facade. What's next, 50% then 35%?
A global economy is fine, but when you start changing clear definitions something is wrong.
I am in complete opposition of this.
Please feel free to share your thoughts and I will respond in kind.
Jason P. Murphy
