When Team U.S.A. walks into London's 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, Friday, July 27, they'll be dressed in an outfit made entirely in China, reports ABC World News.
The news agency took a closer look at the outfit - created by famous American designer, Ralph Lauren - during their "Made in America" segment recently and found every piece was manufactured in China. In response, Congressional leaders in both houses and both parties expressed outrage at the news.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. said that the U.S. Olympic committee should be "ashamed of themselves," according to ABC. Similarly, Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-OH. said, "You’d think they know better."
Several leaders have already called upon the U.S. Olympic Committee to ensure all future U.S. team’s uniforms be made in America. Others have asked they scrap current uniforms and have them remade by an American manufacturer over the next two weeks.
How do you feel about Team U.S.A. uniforms being made in China? Should they be remade in America in time for this Olympics? Or just make it a policy to be made here in the future?
