Ohio congressman blasts Romney on China trade

Source: The Hill

Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) on Tuesday blasted Mitt Romney on China trade, arguing that there is no reason to believe the GOP presidential candidate will actually get tough with China.

The attack comes on a day when Romney campaigns in the key swing state of Ohio and as he is increasingly criticizing President Obama for not doing enough to reduce the massive U.S. trade deficit with China.

“Gov. Romney taking this tact against the president is laughable, quite frankly,” Ryan said, on a press call organized by the liberal Campaign for America’s Future.

Ryan said that Obama has in fact been tough on China, by slapping emergency tariffs on Chinese tire imports and steel tubes used for oil and gas production. He also lauded the president for announcing last week he will take China to a World Trade Organization panel on automobile subsidies.

2. He also slapped tarriffs on wire products.

The jobs we lost to China came flooding back. Some also came back due to high shipping costs. I thought the Cons were against protectionism?
