Senator Grassley Calls for Recission of Tariffs


Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) recently commented on future challenges to the economy in an interview with Yahoo Finance.

It appears that a significant priority for Grassley will be to work across the aisle to ratify USMCA. Grassley noted, "The House will consider the deal first but I will need to work with democratic lawmakers on the three main areas of enforcement, environment and labor." Grassley noted that retaliatory tariffs are hurting farmers in his state and will discourage legislators in Canada or Mexico to ratify the deal. Grassley stated, "So whether it's Mexico or Canada or the U.S. all three countries are saying to the President of the U.S., you have to get rid of these tariffs and I am of the same opinion."
