Sounds more like a Manifesto to Crush the Consumer. A 20% tariff? Are you kidding me? How much more can you strangle the global free market? Tariffs are never a win and they're already out of control. The U.S. has over 12,000 tariffs at mind boggling rates. When there are tariffs, the consumer suffers and that ultimately hurts American progress. If you want a little more education, I recommend reading a report on www.pulpwars.com. It'll open your eyes.

How the hell would anyone suffer by america manufacturing. The reason the trinkets that represent a large percent of chinese export are so cheap is because they refuse to revalue their currency while they laugh at us for buying it all, making an oppressive nation a global power. In the mean time america is on the brink and the comments here are about the consumer!!! Trust that china would compete very hard if americans could buy american computer parts & fake poo, creating a far more robust global marketplace. We are capable we're just sleeping, hopefully you people will wake up....The consumer....Spineless Americans WTF happened to us our fathers & grandfathers had chunks of guys like you in thier stool
