Congress is killing us.

American handmade toys and clothing will be practically banned on January 20th! Billions of dollars worth of children’s products already made will become illegal and be required to be destroyed under the law. Thousands of home businesses and small storefronts may be forced to close shop forever. Chinese toy and clothing companies will benefit greatly as the law will eliminate competition.

Under a new law taking effect Jan. 20th, people manufacturing products aimed at children will either have to pay thousands for absurd and meaningless “safety compliance testing” or close shop. This even includes products made from 100% wood and 100% certified organic cotton!!!

Convinction carries tens of thousands of dollars in fines and potentially even jail time.

No more selling old things on eBay or Craigslist…

And this certificate can only be obtained through expensive testing by an SCPC-accredited laboratory.” Without such certificates, billions of dollars worth of uncertified children’s products will have to be destroyed because they can’t be legally sold without an CPSI-certificate of compliance, and this will cause major environmental problems,” said Massachusetts campaigner Kiki Fluhr.
