ABC News Fills a House with 'Made In America’ Products

Posted by scapozzola on 03/03/2011

As we've previously reported, ABC World News has been spotlighting "Made in America." Their challenge: trying to fill three rooms in a suburban U.S. home entirely with "100 percent American-made products." ABC has pointed out that if every American "spent an extra $3.33 on U.S.-made goods every year, it would create nearly 10,000 new jobs." 

Producers for ABC emptied out the living room, kitchen, and bedroom of a Dallas, Texas home belonging to the Usry family.  The goal was to fill it back up with American-made products. You can see the results here, and can click on the red diamonds to see items up close and learn more about the products and companies involved.

cooking with American products

Your old speckeled blue turkey roaster is made in America as is most cast iron skillets. Check out where your BBQ pitt was made and see if you can find made in America dinner ware. Fine China does not have to come from China or Asia. Corning makes some good dinner ware but is hard to find even in B&B stores.
Feed our hungry, buy American products.

Made in America Jobs

I dont understand why our government is always saying that we need more jobs, but have let the greedy owners of business send so many of our jobs overseas. It's like we have forgotten that alot of our out of work Americans have been downsized and their jobs are now in a 3rd world country. Why wasnt there some regulation that would prevent this by taxing or fineing a business that sent our jobs somewhere else because of greed? I just purchase a new Chevy to try to help support USA. And I got a loan from GMAC, When I had to call the call center for GMAC which is now ALLY, I was talking to a call center overseas. When I asked to talk to someone who speaks English in USA they hung up on me. Was I ever mad at GM for farming out their services to another country!! Lets get our call centers back here and force unemployeed to take jobs here! I'll work in a call center. After I retired I have done everything from cleaning toilets to helping and electrician to pay my bills. What will it take to get our jobs back?

made in America

Here is something I discovered. Products that say they are made in America, like the furniture. Are the fabrics American? A lot of them are from India or Argentina. Are the leathers from American cows? Most are not. There is a steel drilling pipe manufacture in Texas that imports the steel billets to make the pipe from Mexico.

WHY DOES CORPORATE USA RESPOND

Very interesting article by ABC NEWS...now, why doesn't corporate America respond...simply Build some showrooms, like HOME DEPO and stock all items made in the USA....nothing foreign...From furniture, appliances...clothing....everything. They would do landmark business...and get jobs back in the USA
