Nothing so enrages a Republican as another politician looking out for middle class Americans -and as Chinese Officials, Republican’ts and conservative “economists” screech about the thousands of jobs that will be lost in China … I have to wonder where these voices were when previous leaders were letting China take thousands of American Jobs?
According to the Right Wing – the only way to avoid a trade war is to sell out your working class and let China prison rape your economy. Riiiight … the knee jerk reaction of the right today
An important note from the LA Times –
When China joined the WTO in 2001, it agreed to safeguards that allowed the U.S. to impose duties if it was determined that a surge in Chinese imports threatened U.S. producers and caused a market disruption.
The United Steelworkers estimated that 4,000 to 5,000 U.S. tire manufacturing jobs have been lost since 2004 as a result of Chinese imports.
Seems like this is exactly what was supposed to happen at this point.
