If we slap tariffs on countries indiscriminately, prices of stuff based on materials not readily available in the USA might rise inordinately— think oil, titanium, rare earth metals, etc. — that currently are a part of products used in everyday life in the USA. This would hypothetically make prices of such things as gasoline used in cars, cell phones, and jet airplanes rise to near astronomical levels in US dollars, unless we have or can produce stuff that other countries want, need, and are able and willing to buy.

Explain how a 10% tariff would make imports "rise to near astronomical levels in US dollars". This is more gloBULList lies. You guys are so FOS.

Man, you get testy when people on a conservative website question whether raising taxes is such a good idea.
