please do it china, the west deserves it so bad
they have all the power to f us up, its just a matter of when enough is enough
bye bye america

China can eat a dangle with mustard and a smile.
I hope they do it so will can compete with nations that
pay their workers humane wages, instead of racing to the bottom.

They'll never pay humane wages so they'll always have an edge.

Appears the legislation may be dying out before it even gets discussed. We shall see.

The strong misgivings of House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner were the first clear sign the currency legislation might fizzle out, as similar bills have done since lawmakers began targeting China's yuan policy in 2005.

Sorry,but China has more to lose then the US and its allies.............................
Dont think it couldnt happen BTW. If the US decided to place a full Embargo on Chinas mainland,China would fold. Not too many Communist country's for China to trade with anymore...................

I am an American and would love to see this. We could fill a lot of jobs here at home. We need to increase our exports.

With my lack of true understanding for finances - but my heart standing firmly on the need for USA to MAKE and BUY USA - I hope this happens. Sure it will be hell for a while (here I'm presuming) but would it not solve MANY of the problems facing the USA? Jobs at home. Return to being an industry based rather than a 'paperwork' society.

Between the above - and - limiting terms in congress I think the USA had a chance. Without? It's doomed.

As I've that's what brands are for. If you're dispointed with a brand, you avoid it the next time.

BTW, my China made cheapo CRT monitor that I'm using is still functioning well after 4 years.

I have no idea what you meant with that last line.

EU is actually China's biggest customer.

As I've said before, China lost 20 million factory jobs in 2008 because of the crisis. Yet they continue to accelerate. Their domestic market now consumes more cars than any other.

Besides, Jew E won't approve. They love China.

Oh, please. You can pump hundreds of trillion on these countries and they'd just squander that on merriment and killing each other.
There's a reason these countries are the laughing stock of Europe.

Better listen to China, America - they don't play the way you do.

about time they went back to tariffs. They need to raise the standard on made in america at the same time. I worked for some companies that would put 2 items from china together then slap a made in america sticker on it made me sick. A trade war is one of the last things are environment can handle ATM. World wide ecosystems are on the verge of collaspe and a pissing contest isn't going to change it.
I only hope the new revolution starts soon. The world needs one that will undo the corruption and greed and bring us closer the the animal kingdom again we are so displaced in thinking the earth is just here till we die and go to make believe land forever. Its that view point that enables human to destroy there home for there children without a 2nd thought. Lets just hope the new revolution effects everything and turns earth into a utopia and all man respects the environment and is fellow man.

There will be a vote in the senate tomorrow (Thursday morning) regarding this currency bill. Apparently, some Republicans are annoyed and it is now uncertain whether there is enough support to pass it. I'd personally still like to see some action on this. Here's hoping.

Asked on CNBC about the bill’s prospects, the Kentucky Republican said: “It’s probably not going anywhere. … The China currency bill is highly unlikely to pass.” Read more:
