On Monday’s Mark Levin show, Tariffs are taxes imposed by our government on the American people. We’re not taxing foreign countries – we’re taxing Americans for buying foreign goods. These tariffs are crony capitalism because it benefits certain businesses. The vast majority of businesses don’t benefit from this subsidy taxation (tariffs). It’s the government that benefits from these tariffs, not the people. We still have plenty of steel and aluminum in the US and if we we’re ever under attack, we’d do what we did in WWII and have our American assembly lines produce weapons. We don’t need to buy steel from Canada for a strong national defense. Then, should we have an international minimum wage? Should we compel other countries to pay their workers more wages because they earn less than ours do? The bottom line is that products and services are imported to the US because we want and need them and American products and services are exported because we don’t want or need them and other countries do.
On Monday’s show, Levin blasts Trump for his decision to implement taxes (tariffs) on American consumers and businesses. He explains in great detail how horrible the idea is, and how it is a punishment on the American people.
For all of you who are in favor of Trump’s decision to tax American consumers and businesses via tariffs, what say you here? Is Levin just part of the “deep state” looking to take out Trump? Or is Levin right, and all that Trump is doing with these tariffs is engaging in “crony capitalism” as a means to pick winners and losers, the latter of which are American consumers and businesses.
