U.S. lawmakers urge action after China meeting -

It's like the war on drugs. Instead of providing incentives for our citizens to stop using drugs, we threaten other countries who sell us drugs.

Now, we're disgruntled with China because they keep selling us cheap goods. Instead of encouraging people not to buy those goods (and using tariffs to make it harder for corporations to make huge profits with foreign goods), we are warning them of "consequences" if they keep it up.

We are in debt to China up to our eyeballs. Is there anything we as citizens can do to stop the river of money flowing to China? Something to think about next time you're browsing the aisles of Walmart for more cheap crap that you'll throw away in a few months when the shine wears off.
