Do Not Purchase Our Medicines from China

It is MOST IMPERATIVE you take immediate actions to begin a transition from almost total dependence on China for our medicines to a situation where most of our medicines are made in the United States, such as (1) imposing tariffs to protect American producers of medicines from the predatory pricing/government subsidy schemes of China and other nations; (2) mandating country of origin labeling of all ingredients in medicines to enable medical professionals and patients to monitor where their medicines are coming from; and (3) rejecting the globalists’ long-term initiative to build up China at the expense of the United States by ending the Permanent Normal Trade Relations Status for China and ending U.S. membership in the World Trade Organization.

TOO MANY Americans are NEEDLESSLY dying because of this MOST UNCONSCIONABLE situation. IMMEDIATE action MUST be taken!

Therefore please contact your members of Congress along with Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House and Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader as they control what legislation gets introduced and passed or not passed. Demand a response

China is our enemy and we should not purchase or accept anything from China we put into our mouths and that also goes for our pets as witnessed by the many recall’s on pet food products from China in recent years.

They would be DIRT CHEAP if they were from China. Since you can go to Mexico for way, way cheaper meds, those are obviously the ones from China.

The reason products are cheaper when manufactured in China, or Mexico is the far lower labor expense and regulatory compliance costs. Made in USA used to mean something and people took pride in it. When it comes to Made in USA pharmaceuticals, it means that you can count on that drug being concocted in a sterile laboratory environment to an exact formula by trained personnel. Medicine made in China.

A rather important standard for everything health related. "Made In the USA" still means a lot to many.

Unfortunately, the problem is that Made in USA doesn't mean what it did in decades past. Craftsman tools were proudly made in the USA. When you saw them in someone's toolbox, you knew they took pride in their tools. In 2010, in an effort to save money, the production of those tools started moving to China and Taiwan. By 2018, nearly all Craftsman tools were made outside of the USA. (Since the downfall of Sears/K-Mart, Craftsman has been sold to Stanley Black & Decker who are bringing production back to the USA.)

When I was a kid, a Chevrolet was going to be assembled in the USA with UAW labor. You knew it. You expected it. You opened the door and saw that sticker looking at you. Look at the first digit of the VIN on that new Chevrolet, Ford, or Chrysler. Where was it made? In 2017, I bought a new Hyundai Elantra. It had a static cling American Flag sticker across the back window proudly proclaiming that it was Assembled in the USA.

When it comes to medicines, too many people are looking at one thing; price. Yes, we pay more for medicines made in this country. But we know the quality that we will be getting. We know that it will consistently be that quality. A bad batch of medicine? It happens but it is very, very rare. Who will inspect meds from China, Canada, Mexico, or wherever? Who will get sued when a medicine from overseas kills someone? The doctor? The pharmacy?
