US Senate on tarriffs
The US Senate has overwhelmingly expressed support for efforts by U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.),and other lawmakers to ensure Congress plays its constitutional role in the implementation of national security-designated tariffs. By a vote of 88 to 11, the Senate adopted a motion to instruct conferees to include language “providing a role for Congress in making a determination in the final legislation developed by the Senate and House conference committee regarding tariffs." Senator Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said "the Senate spoke loud and clear by overwhelmingly expressing support for our efforts to ensure Congress plays its appropriate role in the implementation of tariffs. Tariffs are a tax on the American people, and as the U.S. economy and American businesses and consumers begin to feel the damaging effects of a incoherent trade policy, I believe support for our legislation will only grow.” Fellow Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander said “imposing these tariffs is like trying to solve a problem by shooting ourselves in both feet at once.” And he added, “The administration has imposed tariffs on aluminum and steel and now other products, provoking a response by tariffs on soybeans and other products grown and manufactured in our country. In general, these tariffs are a big mistake and using national security as an excuse to impose them is an even bigger mistake. I have urged President Trump to , "Tell other countries ‘do for our country what we do for you.’
