If tariffs were working, why does the government need to pay billions of dollars in welfare payments to farmers that would lose their assess because of them?  Run that by me...

We never got very far with the Mexico tariffs because they caved.  We seem to only look at one side of the affect and ignore the other side and it's impact on their economy.  Mexico stands to lose far more then we do, which is why they gave in.

First, we don't pay welfare to farmers, but it is good to know that you are against the idea of welfare.

Second, here is a relatively good article about farm subsidies. Certainly some tweaking would be acceptable. But, the majority of subsidies are in the form of insurance against weather related loss and/or market fluctuations. This prevents farmers from folding up and keeps a more stable food supply.

Oh really?  When the government pays private entity money to stay in business (or alive) that's called welfare.

Dig it.

Now, they wouldn't be getting or needing welfare payments if Trump hadn't kicked off this tariff BS.

Dig that.

LOL!  They didn't cave on anything.  It's apparent they agreed to do stuff BEFORE the threats on tariffs.  None of this is new.  Trump created this entire mess.
