I guess the "Buy American" provision is only a suggestion to the Smithsonian..Statues of Presidents are made in China. Maybe it really is over...

I guess it makes sense...They have so many pieces of green paper with several presidents pictures on them, who better to make the statues? 

At Smithsonian, Americana 'Made in China'

Tens of millions flock to the Smithsonian museums in Washington each year to see Americana -- everything from Abraham Lincoln's top hat to Archie Bunker's chair.

Take the miniature sculptures of presidents sold at the National Museum of American History, located right on the Mall in the nation's capital.

From the busts of George Washington to Barack Obama, they were made in China.

Last month Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, was so outraged by the situation that he fired off a letter demanding that the museum sell products made in the USA.
