Nice to see the worms squirm for a change.

Didn't see this posted anywhere hmm can't figure such a socialist program would fly under the (R)adar since Republicans and Corporate Democrats like to cry for Capitalism and rail against socialism so much 🤔

That Obama TPP deal sounds pretty good right about now.

Come 2020, tariffs on US made goods goes up since we are a TPP outsider even though we negotiated and created the framework.  TPP was created to be an alliance against China, but we decided to go it alone.  

Best case is to be able to do one off deals with individual countries that gets us back to TPP terms.  Currently US goods taxed at 10-20% premium to TPP countries.

Trade wars are dumb because national leaders would rather not look weak then cave.  So they do things like increase tariffs and subsidize domestic industry.  

Looks like a dumb decision with crappy alternative or follow through.  Disaster.

Of the 10 states most negatively affected by the tariffs, Trump won 8.

Dude, no one considers this socialism, and even if it were, they wouldn’t care. 

I do think this is a really dumb time for Trump to be doing this. This is something he should be doing in his second term. He ain’t going to have a 2nd term if he keeps going like this.

So you think it’s dumb for him to be doing this in his first term but it should be something for a second term? You really are a man of principle RC.

Politically it is smart for him to be doing this.

I just got some cheap outdoor chairs at Home Depot recently. For once they didn’t say made in China or Mexico.  They were actually made in the USA.
