Infrastructure BS

I just received a response from my state rep about HR 3533. He gave me a bunch of BS about how it cost too much to use American made products, and how we are living in a global economy. Should we should be expected to be happy to give what we have to the rest of the world so we can move DOWN to their standard of living? These people just do not make any sense. I say buy American: especially with American money.
