      It’s also a national security issue. The labor might be cheaper, but you also have to deal with a communist totalitarian regime having total power and authority over your supply chain.

        Agreed. Back when it first was brought to the public's attention that the vast majority of the US antibiotics are dependent on Chain's resources---that should have been the straw breaking the camel's back. Everyone in this country should be in agreement over that alone.

        All the other aspects are vitally important as well, but when the US health is at risk and hinging on China supply...it becomes the major game changer.

          Especially critical when that government has proven to be extremely hostile with every intention of dissolving the US into their soup of subservients.

              Screw Communists of all stripes whether they are Chinese or American Communists, their goals are the same--to dominate the U.S. and replace us as the world's dominant superpower.
              Fuch 'em all, the red bastards.

                If Trump loses in November all of this will quietly go away along with all of the tariffs and sensible business decisions currently being made.
