Kim and Dave had a great conversation with Support The Center (supportthecenter.org).
Dave feels Americans should be willing to pay more for American made goods. He is ok with tariffs. But as we discussed NAFTA for example, which Trump may blow up, Dave and Kim did not feel blowing it up would be good overall. We discussed TPP and the fact that the Asian countries in TPP have formed their own TPP, this time without the US, but with China. When Dave and Kim learned that Trump took us out of the TPP, at the risk of isolation, this gave them some pause.
We discussed the 2018 Trump tax reductions, and Dave approved of it as long as he gets a cut. But Support The Center pointed out the extraordinary percent of the tax cut benefits going to the super-rich, thus adding to the deficit and indirectly hurting everyone else when this borrowed money has to be repaid. This gave Dave and Kim some pause.
Take a listen to their views:
