Obama & Romney and Trade Policy with China

President Obama goes after Governor Romney, Romney goes after Obama.

It would be nice instead of a bunch of nativist sabre-rattling in the name of gaining political power, the major parties would embrace economic reality. This Daniel Ikenson piece is a must-read.

Clearly Obama prefers protectionism. While Romney might talk like he embraces free trade, his stance with one of our biggest trading partners tells a different story.

My question for the candidates, based on the Ikenson article: why do you look to impose regressive taxes on the middle class??
