NY Times Link First I don't know what's the bigger news the fact that the Republicans actually voted on a bill with the Dems (99 republicans voted for the bill) or the fact that the USA is actually contemplating putting the tariffs on China your thoughts? My thoughts: Lets see how it does in the Senate I don't think it will pass the Senate because lobbyist will scream bloody murder on the 25% tariff that it may impose. While I don't agree that tariffs are the way to go something has to be done to recapture all these manufacturing jobs we have lost. Eventually we will turn into Great Britain who has lost a significant majority of their manufacturing knowledge back in the 70's and 80's. Ex. GB use to be known for Deep Draw stamping technologies; if you wanted a Deep draw die you went to GB. Know if you want a Deep Draw die you have to go to France for it because all of that manufacturing knowledge left the country.
