President Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs have harmed American workers, Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said Thursday at The Heritage Foundation.
Tariffs amount to government control over trade, imposing artificial restrictions on free enterprise, Johnson said. They select winners and losers in the marketplace and keep entrepreneurs from developing innovative solutions that grow the economy.
Heritage experts have laid out the negative consequences of these tariffs, which have hurt many small businesses, including manufacturers.
Johnson thanked Heritage for providing “Congress and the administration the information it needs to try and govern this nation.”
And we that you, our members, for making that work possible.
What do you think the government should do about trade?
