This is a way to raise tax revenue to offset further tax cuts on earned income.

Prices are expected to rise further if the tariffs proposed last week by Mr,. Trump—25% on steel and 10% on aluminum—are implemented.

Tariff == Tax, paid by the ultimate customer: you.

YES! Every cent raised by imposing import tariffs should be returned to We the People in the form of reduced income taxes.

There is a lot of vacant land on the south side where the mills used to be: U.S. Steel, Wisconsin Steel. All long gone. The old Acme Coke plant may be gone too. The LTV mill still stands, but the land is being used for scrapping, etc.

Former pittsburgh resident here. In the 70s, thanks to the unions, young steelworkers bragged about sneaking air mattresses into the mills and sacking out for their shifts. In the 80s, the mills were being disassembled and shipped to china.

Those young guys remind me of the stories about “Joe Magarac”.

too bad this benefit is wasted on a blue sanctuary state. Trump needs the help in Pennsylvania and Michigan! Illinois is a lost cause.

Until supply catches up with demand.

Consumption based taxes, like a tariff, are the way to go now. All Neoconservative should be in favor of them and drop their knee jerk negative reaction to a tariff.

At what price? If the post tariff price is higher than the pre-tariff price, the customer is still paying the difference.

I agree. Abolish the income tax. Reduce the size, scope, power, and COST of government.

So what? That's the price we pay to remain a sovereign nation capable of feeding and producing goods for ourselves. The is no guarantee that the price will be higher than the pre tariff price when you eliminate the middle men and the overseas shipping costs. What will go down are welfare payments and the burden on the tax payer.

What will narrow are the profit margins of globalist corporations that import into the USA. If you simply look at yourself as a "consumer" ( think brainless locust)then you are a shallow loser with no redeeming value. At least to me and every other Patriot.

If you're not on board with that, don't dare to call yourself a patriot.
