CR Liberty Score Update

This legislation raised the cost of imports from non-market economies by applying a special tariff. Ultimately, consumers have had the tariff tax passed along in the form of higher prices. This legislation pits one section of the US economy against the other and attempts to manipulate international trade. This bill was passed by the House 370 – 39 on March 6, 2012 and was later signed into law by the president.
