Does China Need Sanctions?

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow recently said on air that China is openly “breaking a lot of laws,” something that must be stopped.

“No tariffs have been implemented. Now, they may be over time, depending on whether China wants to talk to us or negotiate in good faith,” Kudlow stated.

“In the next several months, [the Trump Administration] will ask the public to comment, and then they will comment on the public’s comments, and then a decision will be made. So it’s not going to be something hasty. It’s going to be something that’s well thought out. A lot of this is going to depend on China. So far China has not responded to President Trump on stealing our technology. They have tall trade barriers, and they’re breaking a lot of laws. President Trump is right. He’s not the problem. China is the problem. But they haven’t responded satisfactorily.”

“We have to do this. We have to get China to change its behavior. It’s been two decades, and they’re still stealing our intellectual property.”

    Of course China is purposefully breaking the law. They see how the democrat party, the main stream media and the corrupt leftists in our government break our laws on a daily basis and nothing happens to them so why not follow suit??????

    America is blessed to be a nation that can be self sufficient.
    We do not need to be stolen from. Our politicians bribed.
    Our purchasing power reduced so as to lower prices in overseas markets.
    It is a zero sum game. We lose as much as we gain, but the hounds bound.
    Our quality of life and goods will only improve if we become self sufficient, but then our borrowing would decrease and that is not to be allowed.

    If our trade with China declines, then we will be getting better products that don’t wear out or break so easily because we will produce much of our own, or purchase from other countries that believe in quality. We will all be better off without China products.
