The Freedom to Pay Lower Prices
The benefits of low prices are frequently overlooked or taken for granted. People see the present state of affairs and not what could take shape under a future policy change. Lowering restrictions on trade would lower prices and benefit the majority of Americans, especially the poor. Sometimes a trade barrier such as a tariff or import quota may benefit a small group, but only at the expense of everyone else. The U.S. should not penalize individual consumers and business consumers by having tariffs or other barriers to trade on imports. The government should not take away from consumers the freedom to pay lower prices.
