as far as Claus Dampmann's response to my letter to the editor, i would like him to explain how a retail fee schedule from a large chinese outsource lab here in Georgia reads 106 dollars for porc to gold. This can not be , the retailer is paying less than that so i believe material are an issue in this discussion. i also believe that the playing field is not level. In avoiding the true cost of labor , health care , federal labor law , This creates an advantage to labs in china that have government controlled wages . Buildings funded by government. I believe when the playing field is level and general public is given a choice they will choose american . As far as iso 9000 , damus and other things that does not even guarantee anything out of china as they continue to thumb their noses at international law . They have and will continue to cheat , all you have to do is look at Lee fong motors admission of intellectual property theft on Ted Koppels special on China. Ted paraphrased Mr. font's favorite saying , " screw with Lee fong and he will screw with you". for me Mr.Dampmann if you want to support the chinese government you go ahead me i will continue to support my country by using American workers . My youtube video soon to released as i traveled this great country interviewing patients about their dental restorations being made in china , 99% most common response is " you got to be kidding i don't want that " so when the the state legislators are on the wrong side of the issue they will make transparency the law. We will rebuild our country through committed businessmen, who find ways to use the American worker. A nation that outsources its knowledge skill and judgement is a nation in decline .
