The new version of the "Buy American" provision - a howler!

OK so the Dems have reached a compromise it seems.

Congressional leaders, trying to quell a dispute over “Buy American” provisions in the stimulus package, are crafting a version that would apply only when they don’t violate trade rules, according to industry officials and a congressional aide.

So the gist of it is that the Dems will insist that we “Buy American” … as long as it’s okay with Canada, Mexico, the EU, and the WTO. Ah, what leadership!
