I believe this controversy has exposed an opportunity for the US to

negotiate a new trade agreement with China to help reduce our debt to

them.  We need to leverage our massive buying power for the benefit of

our country's future stability.  To this end I have created a petition

on the White House website - please sign and share!  My goal is to

achieve 25,000 signatures before next Friday's opening ceremonies. 



Create a trade

agreement with China that for every $1 the U.S. purchases of Chinese goods $1

will be applied to US debt.

In light of the

recent controversy surrounding U.S. Olympians wearing opening ceremony uniforms

made largely in China there has been a push to force the U.S.O.C. to choose

U.S. made products. It is unrealistic to expect U.S. citizens to consume only

U.S. made products, but we should at least use our buying power to reduce our

massive debt to China. We have an opportunity to leverage that buying power for

the long-term benefit of our country. Let's send a message to the Obama

Administration to take advantage of this opportunity and push Congress into

immediate action!
