US moves to put new tariffs on billions’ worth of EU imports

The US is considering putting tariffs on $11 billion in EU goods per year to offset what it says are unfair European subsidies for plane maker Airbus. While the size of the potential tariffs is relatively small, it suggests a breakdown in talks with the EU over trade. The U.S. and EU have been negotiating since last year about how to avoid tariffs.

Do it. The EU experiment is a failure and they need to pay up for the free ride they’ve been getting. How appropriate it is that a socialist union can only operate on the back of the economic powerhouse that is the United States.

This wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that Boeing is about to lose a butt load of business to Airbus because of Boeing's rushed fd up design of its Max.

The EU charges 10% tariffs on imports from the US, while the US only charges 2.5% for products from the EU. Charging the EU more seems justified to me.

Unlike how the US gives trillions in subsidies to weapons manufactures, billionaires and the oil companies. The US is obviously so much better and is the moral standard when it comes to economics.

Translation: "Boeing's incompetence and shotty workmanship is causing them to lose market share to Airbus. So the government must step in to protect Boeing from free market competition by passing tariffs that shift that financial burden to US consumers."
