Most items we buy will therefore be US made and if we have to choose or can choose then we don’t mind to pay a little bit more for US made.

Therefore the tariffs are not seen by us as a tax to the public but a choice you make to support the Country.

I wonder what others do or think about this subject.
Where have you been.

American made, buying local has been a BIG thing for years now. Kind of like that Merry Christmas thing Trump things he invented - -lol.

Welcome on board.

Seriously, Made in America, Buying Local, Shopping Small Business have all been campaigns as early as 2010 if not before.

Always go local if you can.

It wasn't even on the national stage.
Steel plants just announced layoffs of 200 people.

This is true. I never know until it's already bought. Who expects, oranges, for example to come from someplace out of the country?

Did you read any of your links?

The army reducing 50,000 positions

Harley Davidson, GM, other companies that have been terribly run

Payless shoes and others going out of business

What is your point? Do you even know?

What does any of this have to do with anything? Demand goes up and down. Should they keep those two furnaces going and flood their own market with product and hurt themselves?

What is your point with this?
