Tariffs allow us to keep the high paying, high skill jobs. They actually do what the so called economists told us free trade would do.

Her argument was that without cheap Chinese PV cells, that the price of solar power would go up. With solar being less affordable, fewer panels would be sold. This would hurt the people that sell and install them, costing 23,000 jobs. She didn't mention that the EU put a 30% tariff on Chinese solar last year.

These people also do not mention that those Chinese panels are made using the cheapest dirtiest methods to bottom out the solar markets.
