VALLEY - We're disappointed at lawmakers' blustery reaction to the fact that Olympic athletes' apparel is made in China instead of the U.S. While the uniforms for the 1980 Winter Olympics were designed by Evan Piccone and made in the United States, something like 98 percent of Americans' clothes today are made in other countries. American designer Ralph Lauren is catching heat from lawmakers since his company designed the uniforms being made in China for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. Should the lawmakers take part of the blame for economic laws and policies that encourage manufacturing overseas?
