Buy American


BAMW: Pentagon funnels billions to foreign factories ignoring Buy American laws
Senator Murphy says that the Pentagon is funding foreign factories to the tune of $160 billion dollars over the last seven years, costing an untold number of American jobs.


BAMW: States skirt past federal Buy American bans
Enactment of more Buy American laws would clearly mean more American jobs, profits, and tax revenue within the borders of the United States. And if you’re interested in the furthering the growth of the American economy, that’s a good thing.


BAMW: Walgreens avoided the politically-forbidden fruit. Will others?
Corporate tax inversions are the talk of the town these days. When I sat down to write this article, I had planned on slamming Walgreens and Burger King for their corporate inversion, tax-treason trickery plan to abandon America, transfer technical ownership to a foreign country, and leave their domestic corporate competitors (those who have not decided to renounce their U.S. citizenship) holding the tax-bill bag.


Made In USA In High Demand
This is why organizations like the Made in the USA Foundation and activists like Roger Simmermaker, author of How Americans Can Buy American and owner of, became active in identifying American-made products. “When it comes to buying American, I tell people to start with the smaller items,” advises Simmermaker. “I also advocate buying American-made products from American companies, which can be harder than you think. Swiss Miss is American, and Carnation is owned by the Swiss.”


Who, What, Where, & Why to Buying American Products from US Companies
In celebration of the 4th of July holiday, Women’s Voices Magazine asked Jim Palmer and Roger Simmermaker to share their thoughts, research, and experiences with us. As you will see, buying ‘Made in America’ is one way to truly support economic independence and national security of the USA in today’s world.


BAMW: Buy American bills fail to invite retaliation from key trading partner
The latest ironclad evidence that Buy American laws do not automatically attract similar buy-domestic laws in other countries can be found within the borders of our immediate neighbors to the North – Canada.


‘Made in America’ not easy for retailers to deliver on
Wherever you stand on the issue of prices versus patriotism, Florida ‘Buy American’ advocate Roger Simmermaker said July Fourth is a good time for citizens to take stock about how they are spending their money whether they’re going to support jobs in the United States or outside the country. ‘We have a Declaration of Independence, not a declaration of interdependence,’ said Simmermaker, an author of two books on buying U.S. made products. ‘Buying American is about more than just American-made products and U.S. jobs,’ he said. ‘We’re less of an independent country to the extent that we rely on other nations to supply our wants and needs.’


BAMW: I propose a toast to truly American beer
According to the Brewers Association, there are over 2,700 craft breweries in the U.S., many of which serve authentic American-brewed, American-owned beer.


BAMW: All American Coupon Book saves you money on American products
I was delighted to find out that there is a new all-American coupon book that focuses on helping consumer patriots save money on American-made goods while we fulfill the obligation that many of us feel in supporting American jobs and the American economy with our purchases.
