Good thing too because US fabs and labor don't come cheap.
While AMD may get a slightly lower price now due to the fact their fabs weren't fully utilized and TSMC's more likely are, they're also getting a generic process which prevents them from getting a premium price.
How many 32-nm Atom netbooks were sold last year? Zero? Why was Intel using an inferior process for Atom? Why was Intel denying itself a "premium price" for Atom?
These are budget processors and any "pricing premium" wasn't worth the expense of producing them in cutting edge fabs.
