At a time when the federal government is spending billions of stimulus dollars to stem the tide of U.S. layoffs, should that same government put even more Americans out of work by buying cheaper foreign products? In this case, Chinese condoms.

In a move expected to cost 300 American jobs, the government is switching to cheaper off-shore condoms, including some made in China.
