    From my view it's worth it solely for intellectual property. In my understanding shifting production back to the United States is fairly unrealistic. However in the face of enormous income inequality partly boosted by suppressed Chinese wages and resulting prices, it's worth a shot to bring back those jobs.

A bunch of 2 year Reps that got elected that will be running for re-election on a platform of nothing done but preaching hatred of the current administration and boolsheet. Can't wait to see that empty sheet of accomplishments. That's definitely a plan to govern, Dems. Keep shooting yourselves in the ass[.

    Question...

    What makes you so sure that isn't going to work?

    AOC is focused on saving ducks from becoming duct tape, so she has that resume event to offer.

    People get excited by AOC's and the Steve Kings in Congress. Keep in mind they are 1/535th. Lots of morons running around including the "grim reaper" lol

    Nice try. She doesn't excite me. She makes me laugh.

    And she is an embarrassment to the Democratic Party, along with Pocahontas and a number of other loons.

    I agree caf. All the hand wringing about tariffs is a little tiresome. There’s a reason other countries do it to us and we did it to them in the past. We simply can’t afford to be totally altruistic in trade all the time. Something has to be done about China and nobody else seems to have any plan other then to let them keep taking us for all we’re worth. And I don’t think it plays badly politically at all. Trumps base is made up of probably the majority of people who’ve been complaining about cheap Chinese goods and the Chinese taking American jobs for years. People are happy to see a little push back even if it means higher prices

    Elizabeth Warren is a brilliant, accomplished professional who I happen to disagree with politically on just about everything. AOC is neither brilliant nor accomplished and does not belong in a comparison with Warren.

    Just joined the #walkout of the House chamber to protest the shameful, politically-motivated GOP vote holding AG Holder in contempt

    Perhaps slightly hypocritical? Never mind - forgot there “was not one whisper of a scandal” in Obama’s administration according to Biden.

    How can the House accomplish any of the things you want when McConnell will just block it in the Senate?
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Including our Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown. I'm actually not hearing too much squawk from the Dems about this- probably because they've been privately wishing for this for a while, but they're too chickensheet too do anything.
    This is actually going to play well, and with the economy going good it's the best time to do it. Obama was too scared.
