    Just think Trump has gotten liberals to denounce what they call a tax increase. Trump needs to support the green new deal and gun grabbing. Then we might be a normal country again. Oh and open borders. Then liberals would support the opposite.

    Oh ok, that was it.

    Fuckingly shocking to nobody with an intact brain stem every goddamn time the government “helps” shit gets more expensive and you get less choices.

    Deregulating the act gave you less, more expensive choices.

    Nothing if I don't buy their products, silly. Imagine Trump trying to do something good for America, and you hate it.

    REGIONAL ECONOMIES SPECIALIZING IN AGRICULTURE, METALS HAVE THE HIGHEST SHARE OF EXPORTS IN TARIFF-AFFECTED INDUSTRIES


    This method results in a region-by-region estimate of the exports—and export-supported jobs—generated by industries under the scope of retaliatory tariffs. Nationally, the tariffs touch about 6.1 percent of exports. But there is significant local variation across the 962 metropolitan areas, micropolitan areas, and rural geographies in our Export Monitor database, from a low of 0.3 percent of exports and 0.2 percent of export-supported jobs in Los Alamos, N.M. to a high of 26.1 percent of exports and 24.1 percent of export-supported jobs in Blytheville, Ark. In the median region— Orangeburg, SC—tariff-affected industries account for about 8.8 percent of exports.

    The retaliatory tariffs differ by trading partner, but there are some commonly targeted industries. All four markets focused tariffs on agricultural products. Agriculture cuts a very specific geography across the United States, particularly implicating metro areas in California’s Central Valley as well as rural areas and small towns in states like Illinois, Iowa, and Nebraska. Regional economies specializing in metals and certain segments of manufacturing also jump to the top of the list in terms of export exposure, led by Birmingham, Ala.; Nashville, Tenn.; and Toledo, Ohio.

    EXPORT DEPENDENCE IN TARIFF-AFFECTED INDUSTRIES IS HIGHEST IN RURAL AREAS AND SMALL TOWNS
    The nation’s major regional economies have the largest volume of exports in tariff-affected industries; Houston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas, Seattle, and Detroit all exceed $2 billion in exports in targeted industries.

    But partly due to their sheer size—and reliance on exports in higher value-added services outside the scope of the tariffs—large metropolitan areas, on average, have a much lower share of their exports in tariff-affected industries than smaller metro areas and rural communities. Across the 100 largest metro areas, only about 4.4 percent of exports (3.5 percent of export-supported jobs) are in tariff-implicated industries. That share jumps to 7.5 percent (7.5 percent of export-supported jobs) in smaller metro areas, 9.5 percent in micropolitan areas (9.8 percent of export-supported jobs), and 12.2 percent in rural areas (13.4 percent of export-supported jobs).
