Citizens Against Government Waste Opposes Trade War Bailout


Today, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) President Tom Schatz
released the following statement opposing the U.S. Department of
Agriculture's $12 billion bailout
of U.S. farmers hurt by the Trump administration's trade war.

CAGW President Tom Schatz said in a statement:

"The Trump administration is compounding the consequences of the trade
war by proposing a $12 billion bailout intended to soften the economic
blow caused by the administration's own tariffs. This regressive,
circular economic logic will harm American workers, consumers, and
taxpayers. Instead of using taxpayer dollars to bailout victims of
President Trump's trade war, the administration should remove
destructive tariffs and begin to engage in free and open trade, which
will benefit farmers and all Americans."

eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government.
