    • One thing our Government won't do is give their own jobs away. Our Government is the height of Stupidity.
      During the trade talks the U.S. government agreed to gradually abolish all tariffs in place on Japanese vehicles entering the nation. Removing the tariffs will aid the Japanese while doing nothing to help Detroit's comeback.
      A study released by the Center for Automotive Research said that erasing the 2.5% tariff on cars would cause the Japanese to increase their vehicle exports to the U.S. by over 100,000 units.
      The study claims that the decline in production would cause 2,600 American factory jobs to be lost. After a trickle-down effect it would cause lost jobs for Detroit's auto suppliers to reach as much as 9,000 – not good.
