Just maybe their standards of living were closer to ours they would stay home.......@creppelrm I'm curious......Who do you think is responsible for changing their standard of living? Do you destroy ours in order for them to raise theirs? Hope you will answer because I think this is important.

When the Chinese tire companies were dumping tires and US tire makers were getting laid off, Republican raised a stink when Obama raised tariffs on tires.

Since 2010 Republicans have controlled what legislation hit the floor. Put the blame where it belongs.

========================

Thanks for pointing that out. Like I said there are winners and losers.


In the case of Obama’s flirtation with protectionism, the tariff on Chinese tires did little more than drive the more frugal U.S. consumers into the arms of alternative low-cost tire manufacturers, such as those from Thailand, South Korea, Indonesia, and Mexico. American tire manufacturers were never quite in direct competition with Chinese manufacturers because American manufacturers were not in the business of selling low-end tires to begin with.

We are living in the richist country in the world and you compare yourself with a mexicans standard of living? Better learn to give as well as receive. Sometimes it pay bigger dividends. Just maybe their standards of living were closer to ours they would stay home.

============================

What has that got to do with our trade deficit?

We are one of the most giving country in the world.

Well, we certainly will be under Trump. I see the Chinese have increased tariffs on U.S. soybeans by 25% while eliminating tariffs on soybeans from other nations. Wonder when we will ever get that market share back?  Oh well, it will be an easily won trade war, I'm sure. After all, China has never shown a willingness to take losses in order to increase their influence, have they? Oh wait, they do it all the time, don't they?

But the fact is our country is on the short end when it comes to trading with other countries. Its easy to ignore that like Obama and others have done...its good that we have a President that is addressing the problem.
