Tariffs are taxes paid by Americans

To the editor:

One more time for slow people: The people who buy goods from China pay the tariff. China doesn’t pay anything to the U.S. government due to tariffs.

This is a tax on American consumers. The U.S. has not gained millions of dollars because of tariffs, but millions of Americans are paying for it every time they buy something that falls under the tariffs. Wake up!
