You Know You’re A Fool If …

Bernie Sanders agrees with you on economic policy.  Here is Bernie agreeing with The Donald on ending TPP:

The president and Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders both attacked TPP, a free trade agreement among the US and 11 other countries, on the campaign trail. Sanders praised Trump’s decision, saying TPP is “dead and gone”.

“Now is the time to develop a new trade policy that helps working families, not just multinational corporations,” Sanders said in a statement. “If President Trump is serious about a new policy to help American workers then I would be delighted to work with him.”

“For the past 30 years, we have had a series of trade deals … which have cost us millions of decent-paying jobs and caused a ‘race to the bottom’ which has lowered wages for American workers,” he said.

Life with The Donald isn’t going to be pretty.  On the other hand, this is an area of agreement between The Donald and Herself so it is not a cost from election choice.  Either way we get higher prices, less growth, and regressive taxes.  The best choice, as always, is just to eliminate all tariffs.  There is no need to help other countries.
