Welcome to Made in the USA

Our government has had multiple years to address our "fiscal cliff" issues and it has had a hard time working together to resolve our problems.  We've been fighting high unemployment rates for years.  We’ve sent over 4 million jobs overseas since 2001.  And with lost jobs comes lost tax revenue.  As citizens we should do something.  Buy American!
In his re-election speech Obama said "America's never been about what can be done for us. It's about what can be done by us...."  The quote was Obama's version of a popular JFK quote, "ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country."  We can make a difference.  We can help the American economy by buying American made products from American companies when possible. The average American spends $700 on holiday gifts and goodies, totaling more than $465 billion.  If that money was spent entirely on US made products it would create 4.6 million jobs.  If every American spent $64 on American made goods during holiday shopping, the result would be 200,000 jobs.

I’m not suggesting you must buy all American products from now on.  I'm suggesting you buy more American products.  To help us escape some of our economic woes buying American manufactured products will help restore manufacturing jobs in this country, and this site seeks to make that task easier for you. 

This site will detail and highlight products made in America.  We will feature articles, information, and news about products "Made in the USA."
