(Mr. TRAFICANT asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)

Mr. TRAFICANT . First, the Air Force bought Chinese boots. Now, the Pentagon is buying berets made in China. The Pentagon said China is cheaper. Unbelievable. What is next? At 17 cents an hour, will the Pentagon hire Chinese soldiers?

Unbelievable. Think about it. The beret once signified our elite ranger force. Now it is about to become a product of communism.

Beam me up. What has happened to the common sense of America? I say it is time to tell the Pentagon we can hire generals and admirals a lot cheaper from China, too.

Mr. Speaker, I yield back the fact that the berets should only be made in America and should only be worn by the elite Army ranger force.
