A trade war with Mexico?
What happens when you elect the most protectionist candidate in US history?
What happens when you pair up that candidate with Nancy Pelosi, the most anti-free trade Speaker of the House in US history?
You get protectionism and a trade war with Mexico.
Ed Morrissey is right: Let the trade wars begin!
Who gets hurt by trade wars?
"The action alarmed Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas, the ranking Republican on the trade subcommittee of the House Ways and Means Committee.
Wheat and beef are two of his states top three exports.
"We've got a tough economy.
We are going to lose sales, ag sales of exports that we are selling into Mexico and that may well go to other countries," he said.
"If you raise (duties), our wheat or beef may not be competitive to Mexico consumers."
Who gets hurt? People who create jobs get hurt!
I feel bad but my conscience is clear. I voted for McCain!
I voted for the guy who supported free trade and told us what we needed to hear about the economy and national security!
