Lawmakers are outraged over Team U-S-A's Olympic uniforms.
A-B-C News reports the red, white and blue clothing, designed by Ralph Lauren, was made in China.
Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid slammed the U-S Olympic Committee for the move.
"I am so upset. I think the Olympic Committee should be ashamed of themselves. I think they should be embarrassed. I think they should take all the uniforms, put 'em in a big pile and burn them and start all over again. If they have to wear nothing but a singlet that says U-S-A on it, painted by hand, that is what they should wear. We have people in America, in the textile industry. We have people in the textile industry who are desperate for jobs and I think what the Olympic Committee has done is absolutely wrong," Senator Reid said.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she also believes the athletes should wear American-made uniforms.
The U-S Olympic Committee responded to the criticisms, telling A-B-C News, quote, "The U-S Olympic team is privately funded and we're grateful for the support of our sponsors."
It went on to say it's proud of its partnership with Ralph Lauren, which it points out, is an American company.
