WASHINGTON -- U.S. House lawmakers on Tuesday voted in favor of legislation that restores the government's ability to levy billions of dollars in tariffs on imports from China and other non-market economies, sending the measure to President Barack Obama for his signature.
On Monday, the Senate unanimously passed the measure, which would address a December court ruling that left trade officials in a bind after it was judged that countervailing duties on imports from nonmarket economies such as China weren't allowed.

So you will have to pay a few dollars more at Harbor Freight and Wal Mart. No big deal. I am all for import tariffs.

I do realize that the Chinese manipulation of their currency has a lot to do with the current situation we are in, but is this the best time to piss of the people that fund your budget shortfalls?
