Congressional "Outrage" Over Chinese-Made Ralph Lauren Uniforms?

American politicians, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), expressed "disgust" and "outrage" that Ralph Lauren's sartorial donation to the 2012 Olympics were made in China, and demanded that the uniforms be "burned."

But where is Congress's disgust and outrage about this alarming trend?

I would also point out that Ralph Lauren is one of America's iconic and most successful designers, who has done more for promoting American fashion and supporting the American Olympic team, than all of Congress combined.


  1. Congressional should have a "g" in it -- and Congress' is actually Congress's, unless you are talking about multiple sessions of Congress (rather than this session of Congress).

    I agree -- it seems a bit delayed to complain about a trend that has occurred over the past 20-30 years. This is a prime example of how wasteful Washington is in this current hyper-partisan climate.
