What will it take to put Americans back to work making things again? Will we ever see more "Made in U.S.A." labels on the shelves of big box stores like Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Target? Or will the flood of Chinese-made products continue, adding to an alarming 26,000 U.S. manufacturing plants that have shut down since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001, and pushing more hard-working men and women out of jobs?

On September 29, the voices of frustration burst through Washington's gridlock. With a bipartisan vote of 348-79, the House took the strongest action yet by passing a bill, sponsored by Reps. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) and Tim Murphy (R-Pa.), to challenge China's practice of undervaluing its currency.
