    Well, the bill doesn't actually raise a tarrif. It gives the administration authority to do it. Obama could simply elect not to do so.

    I'm sure he'll pander to Big Labor and do it. Midterms are coming up.

    I would like to see some goods imported from other countries too. I've just about had it with affordable cheap Chinese junk. How is it a cost savings when everything breaks so quickly?

    Actually this could cost me my job, sales are already soft and even though I make stuff in America, we import our steel from China.

    We just had a price increase, adding another could obliterate what work we did have.

    I manufacture very expensive "somethings" made with Chinese steel.
    Not everything that comes from China is junk.

    Don't we have steel in the US? So what about the steel workers in the US who have lost their jobs?

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Whose job is more important?
    My job, which I'm already employed or a potential job as a steel maker?

    Steel made in the U.S. is of higher quality, unnecessary for the applications, that my company needs.
    Why should they be forced to waste money for something they don't need?

    Well if you'd listen to some of the conservatives around here, you might think literally nothing is more important than an American job. What? You can't write a law banning the dumping of deadly chemicals directly into the school lunchroom at the local high school, the extra expense of waste disposal will cost jobs!
