Poll: Voters support controversial border-adjustment tax
JS -- A tax on goods made outside the US will hurt commerce with other countries. This is another case of the President Paul Ryan Agenda.
The majority of Americans support a proposal to impose a new 20 percent tax on imports, according to a new poll.
The Harvard-Harris survey found that 62 percent of Americans would support a 20 percent tax on all goods made outside the United States.
The idea is backed by 77 percent of Republicans, 61 percent of independents and 51 percent of Democrats, according to the poll.
A new tax on imports is a key part of the tax reform plan from Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). Ryan's border adjustment tax would impose the 20 percent tax on imports and reduce taxes on exports.
