  • sorry this thread was so short.. distracted

    so yeh, people (even @ Fox) are getting on Trump's case bc he wants a 25% tariff on steel and a 10% tariff on aluminum

    They say it will increase costs in business that use steel

    As far as I know, no one has brought up this thought I have:

    In time, with US steel and alum makers doing better (because of reduced competition from overseas) the price of US steel will go down, won't it?

    The steel industry in the US does not appear to be doing well. Soemthing has to be done. And I love the way Trump puts the US interests first. I think a lot of people who are against the tariffs are against it just bc of their own profit concerns... God knows, but i doubt the cost of business and the cost to consumers of these tariffs is going to break anyone... 

    Americans can be real wimps... don't want to sacrifice for others much. Oh, I am not in the steel business, so... wahhhhhhhhhhhhh... i might have to pay 1 Cent more for some canned peas!

    OMG!

  • other countries will retaliate against these steel/alum tariffs?

    I thought other countries were already (as it were) retaliating: through the extreme imbalance RE trade?

    The US has lost ENOUGH jobs already.. to countries overseas. Those who want to keep the status quo (unfettered free trade that hurts the US) can forget about my support

    Everyone has an agenda.. My agenda is America First..

    With all the illegal immigration (crimes committed against US citizens by illegals.. the lost welfare revenues.. and the stupid libs who always seem to support illegal criminals over US citizens.. I have had enough

  • very interesting what Pat Buchanan has to say about tariffs

    interesting that I was instinctively in favor of them despite not knowing all that (that Buchanan knows)

    What I did know was that other presidents b4 Trump were causing a trade deficit to their own country... so much for mere instinct...

    anyway... I always wonder about the facts I don't know, that some "expert" may know... but sometimes common sense is sufficient..
