Not Made in America

In October 2011, I ended up in the hospital. In 
January a care package arrived from my Medicare provider.

This is a wonderful service intended to provide nutrition to an individual who was just released from the hospital. (Though 3 months is a long time to wait.)

What I found disturbing is Medicare 
dollars are being used to purchase foods from Thailand and the Philippines.

How many jobs would be created if 
government programs were required to purchase items “Made in America?”
