Our country’s Olympic uniforms may bear the letters ‘U.S.A.’, but they’ve actually been manufactured overseas in China. While many have been quick to shrug off the origins of the Ralph Lauren-designed wares, there is one man who is not so happy with the revelation. In an interview with ABC News [1], Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid [2] (D-Nev.) told a reporters, “I think they should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again. If they have to wear nothing but a symbol that says U.S.A. on it, painted by hand, that is what they should wear.”
