Like a Soviet-type economy': GOP free traders unload on Trump

The president's $12 billion farm bailout gets an ugly reception among many Republicans in Congress.


President Donald Trump’s bailout for the ag industry is driving his many Republican trade critics to exasperation. Pro-free trade Republicans were already furious with Trump's escalation of tariffs against U.S. allies and China — a multi-front trade war they say is hurting U.S. farmers and manufacturers. But the administration’s response Tuesday — announcing plans to send $12 billion to farmers hurt by retaliatory tariffs to ease the pain — is the opposite of conservative, free-trade orthodoxy, they said.

“This is becoming more and more like a Soviet type of economy here: Commissars deciding who’s going to be granted waivers, commissars in the administration figuring out how they’re going to sprinkle around benefits,” said Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). “I’m very exasperated. This is serious.”
“Taxpayers are going to be asked to initial checks to farmers in lieu of having a trade policy that actually opens and expands more markets. There isn’t anything about this that anybody should like,” said Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, the No. 3 GOP leader. He suggested the new spending might need to be offset by cuts in other funding areas.

He sure must have been referring the the GM baliouts where we gave them Billions for the Volt.

Cost $150,000 to make and sold for a third.

If Obama was doing this would you support it?

Of course, you wouldn’t

You’d call it liberal left wing and despise it

From someone across the pond watching this crap, yeah it's funny


Deep state is where it's at btw, not the con man Trump or his critics. How has the economy been in the US? Rich still getting richer while the rest rot, debating the name of whatever screw over system is in place.

Beginning to the think the people of America like being screwed over, the by who is irrelevant

No it didn't.

Gm still pays more in labor costs than the actual cost to produce autos.

There might be more to that than we think

Trump may be carrying out Putin's commands to sow destruction in America.

You shouldn’t think it is too funny..

Not after the UK sub contract their military needs to the US..

If trump or someone like him decides to back away from the UK yall do not have a military able to step in and replace the US..

That was the deal after WW2..

The point is to do things with some sense, planning, right-direction, not just sow destruction like Trump is doing
