(KTVI) - The opening ceremonies at the Olympics are just weeks away, and the U.S. Olympians will be sporting red, white and blue uniforms that were made in China.

The U.S. Daily News is reporting Ralph Lauren designed the uniforms, but the apparel contract to make them is with a Chinese company.

The U.S. Olympic committee said it was proud of its sponsors and unlike most other Olympic teems, the U.S. team is privately funded.

Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, slammed the committee over the reports that were made overseas and said the uniforms should be burned. 

House speaker, John Boehner, and minority leader, Nancy Peolsi, believe they should be wearing American made uniforms as well.

The uniform company said the outfits embody the spirit of the American athleticism and sportsmanship.
