Bill would require feds to buy American textiles and apparel

@NilesOhio...I'm happy that you see no reason not to buy American...except for the main factor in all Government see in garments American made products are 20 to 30% more expensive than those made overseas. While I like the idea I can tell you it is difficult to find US goods and be competitive. I prefer US decoration. ( I do decorate most of my goods in house)

Keep in mind our government operates at a deficit and needs to save money where it can. Now every decision has trade offs so do you want US Made garments and a deficit or good garments and a balanced budget?
