Just in case you think I'm exaggerating - here is a current link:
EDIT: I understand that they pay less for postage in China and ship in bulk, and that they may be subsidized by their government, BUT it costs time, money, and fuel for the USPS to deliver the item once it hits our shores, so why aren't Chinese charged the $1.97 minimum?
It's the opposite of a tariff, it's an incentive to export to the U.S. and undercut domestic sellers/manufacturers, with U.S. tax dollars subsidizing delivery!
