    Lawmakers Want ‘Made in China’ U.S. Olympic Uniforms Burned - ABC News

    Lawmakers were outraged Thursday after an ABC World News report revealed that the U.S. Olympic team’s opening ceremony outfits are made in China. Some suggested making a bonfire with the outfits, which include berets and blazers.
    “I think they should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said when asked by ABC News today, “If they have to wear nothing but a symbol that says USA on it, painted by hand, that is what they should wear.”

    Sounds like Romney was in charge of the uniforms.

    Burning them would be little strong don't ya' think? Why not just "replace them" with American made uniforms?

    Lawmakers furious over China-made uniforms for U.S. Olympic team
    July 12, 2012 WASHINGTON (AP) — Uniforms for U.S. Olympic athletes are American red, white and blue — but made in China. That has members of Congress fuming.
