FreedomWorks Opposes Steel and Aluminum Tax

FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon released the following statement on news that the Commerce Department will recommend slapping tariffs on steel and aluminum:

"The consumers pay tariffs and other taxes. Why are we trying to wipe away all the benefits of December’s fundamental tax reform?

"In addition, tariffs ignited the Great Depression. Other countries will retaliate, killing the very exports and American jobs this administration seeks to promote."
