Soo… the “EPA” killed the steel industry?[/quote]
No , Ronald Reagan killed the steel industry, I personally would not want to live in a Country that had no environmental regulations [/quote]
But you just said that those regulations are at least part of what made the industry not competitive.[/quote]
You have to think out side the box , it is not the problem it is the solution . Steel is a (VERY) DIRTY industry. It not only pollutes the local environment it has far reaching effects . If we have to compete with people that have no inclination to protect the environment than we should penalize them with a tariff.[/quote]
I can’t go along with a tariff for envirionmental reasons, just can’t get there. There does have to be some method for dealing with products from industries that receive subsidies. [/quote]
Tariffs are nothing but a way to level playing fields ,exploiting cheaper labor is not good for America , exploiting our environment is not either
lol. So, we should probably raise the taxes on all the competitors of goodwill because they use a less productive labor force. And raise taxes on southern car manufactures. Hell, why not just level it all and have the government make everyone the same?
Raise taxes on ford because they have the unfair advantage of better management.
Differences in the “playing field” are what make all business succeed or fail. To level the field would be to make it where no business failed. Then we could all be poor and destitute together.
