    Smoot-Hawley.

    Tax cuts are starting to work. These tariffs will raise prices, hurting Americans. Plus Democrat Donald is also talking raising the gas tax 25 cents and spending $1.5 trillion on infrastructure.

    Prior poor planning produces piss poor production. Hopefully, Congress stops this insanity.

    Trump lowered the corporate tax rate to attract more foreign business, now he's putting tariffs on businesses, which is a deterrent. I realize the difference between the two, but they are also kind of connected.
    This tariff will raise prices to us in the long run.
    I think it's a bad idea because multiple sources of steel is more stable than a single source.

    The free market bed wetters are afraid he'll start the trade war that's been going on for 50 years.

    Our companies and our country survives on the foreign exports of our products too. Now the other countries will tariff our goods also, which would hurt our business. I was shocked yesterday to hear about how much we export to other nations. The numbers are staggering.
    Bush tried this and it failed within two years. I hope Trump has a better overall plan.

    I doubt they will after this. Let the union leaders explain that one.

    The world needs us a lot more than we need them, we can survive without their help.

    The union leadership isn't the rank and file. I used to laugh when the Teamsters said they were backing democrats and I knew where I worked 75-80% of the rank and file were voting the other way.

    The Unions are Democrats, even when the Republicans help their members more. And the membership goes along with them.
    :duh:
    :regretful:

    Of course, the union leadership doesn't care about the members they care about their own careers.

    But our businesses sell a lot of stuff overseas and they still need those sales too.

    The same thing happened at my barn. But then again, nobody ever voted for Hoffa either.

    Big rift between rank and file and the bloated leadership anymore. Smarter unions stayed out of last election for that reason. How could anyone from the top down in the carpenters union support an open borders candidate? Hell, how many us citizens are still carpenters or plumbers in places down south with lots of illegals? None?

    The more illegals that flow across our borders, the less union members are needed. The Union's should have fought against their existence years ago but instead toed the Democrat party line.
    Piss poor union leadership if you ask me.

    still think this is going to be used to bring our trading partners to the table
    most charge tariffs on our products while we dont on theirs, that is not free trade

    as for the gas tax, does he really believe that the 25 cents would actually go to infrastructure?
    into the general fund and spend on shrimp research

    Ya, that .25 (extra) put on gas purchases at the pump could further fund the ultra important studies of the reproductive organs of frogs.
    Every politician that votes for this kind of idiotic pork should be voted out, but instead, we let them get away with it.
