RE: Uncle Sam orders military to 'buy American'... solar panels
The United States government, military or any other tax payer funded organization should be required to purchase from U.S. sources first, and only allowed to acquire from foreign sources when no domestic source is available. Don't get me wrong. I am no isolationist and if the foreign item is cheaper or better, then the public should have the right to purchase it. But the government's # 1 responsibility is to our country and our country is in an economic crisis. Purchasing locally is good for the local economy on every level.
