Another Dangerous Chinese Import - Drywall

This post is probably the least Tea Party related one I've posted, but it's at least tangentially related - as American companies are less and less able to compete due to regulations, environmental impact taxes, corporate taxes, etc., Chinese goods become more attractive. The problem is that it seems to be common practice in China to cut corners (read: cheat) when making products, and thus make them dangerous. Lead paint on toys. Melamine in pet food. Melamine in baby formula. Now, toxic chemicals in drywall. Read the article from the AP, via Yahoo.
American consumers are paying the price in health problems, property value declines, and the Chinese companies who created this junk are laughing all the way to the bank.
