GAWD FORBID that a government actually support the workers in its own country...I don't care if there is a difference in price, our government should not be buying airplanes, uniforms, widgets, doodads, or doohickeys from any manufacturer outside the USA.Originally posted by: teclis1023

I'm one of those horrible nationalists who believes our government should not be doing a single dime of business with foreign companies. America should be spending American tax dollars in America, buying American made products, made by American workers who spend their American money in America...unfortunately, buying Chinese made goods...it doesn't matter if the plane is made by a company in a NATO country, nor if they build a plant in Bum-Fuck Alabama where workers may earn $9.00/hour...the government should NOT be buying foreign made...IMO, it's UN-AMERICAN!
I'm all about bringing jobs back to America, but your plan is idiotic for many, many reasons.
That however, is NOT license for the companies to steal, as apparently the Boeing contract seems to have been...THAT kind of activity should also carry SEVERE penalties.
