There’s a company several miles down the road from here called Alatech. They’re in Eufaula, Alabama. And they make condoms.
And they used to sell condoms to the U.S. government. To the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), to be precise.
But, according to McClatchy, that’s about to end:
In a move expected to cost 300 American jobs, the government is switching to cheaper off-shore condoms, including some made in China.
The switch comes despite implied assurances over the years that the agency would continue to buy American whenever possible.
“Of course, we considered how many U.S. jobs would be affected by this move,” said a USAID official who spoke on the condition that he would not be named. But he said the reasons for the change included lower prices (2 cents versus more than 5 cents for U.S.-made condoms) and the fact that Congress dropped “buy American language” in a recent appropriations bill.
Which means that the U.S. is going to be buying rubbers from the Red Chinese.
And that makes sense, if you thing about it. I mean, what else would socialists (Obama and the “Democratic” party) screw capitalists (American companies) with but commie condoms?
At least they’re using a rubber.
