PostSubject: "Buy American"   Wed Apr 19, 2017 4:56 am

Yesterday Trump signed an executive order requiring that government contracts buy American-made goods.

Which sounds good until you re-word it.  "Yesterday Trump signed an executive order requiring that government contracts buy the most expensive goods rather than saving money."

The news commentator who delivered the story included some footage taken at Trump's new hotel down the street from the White House.  The soap was made in Canada, the towels in India and the robe in China.

When it's his own money, price matters.

And of course by eliminating the need to compete all domestic suppliers will hike their prices to the hilt. Hello $4m hammers and $2m pens.
