How to buy an American car

With the global supply chain, it would be impossible to find a car that is 100 percent American-made. Here’s the biggie: If you look back to the list of $600 billion of deficits in consumer products, you will notice that nearly $200 million, one-third of the entire deficit, is attributable to automobiles and components.  This is the place where action is most effective, and most needed.  We have already noted the trend toward increasing the foreign content of cars that are assembled in the United States.  With the global supply chain, it would be impossible to find a car that is 100 percent American-made.
