If everything you bought certified US made was tax free would you buy it to help the economy?


If the US government designated that all products manufactured in the US (subject to intense audits) were tax free would you buy it, even though it may still cost a little more to boost the economy and bring work back home?

    Excellent point and well taken. I just think that even if it were items we buy out of necessity, that more production in the US would bring more jobs and give people an incentive to buy American made.

    For clarification, I am all for buy American, but I'm not in favor of further manipulating/complicating the already bizarre tax code to try to accomplish it. Also sales tax is a State tax source, income tax is mostly a federal tax, more complications

    You are all right in reference to the tax break but what about a rebate, or some other type of "kickback "

    It just seems like the more we export goods for manufacturing, etc, the more our economy seems to be declining and unemployment rising

    @JThom42 - you have the answer. The Made in America Brand needs to mean something, but first there needs to be a certifying body, like Organic has so that there is an even playing field and a real system.
