Rep. Kevin McCarthy: Tariffs Could Be a Good Thing

(Fox Business)

By    |   Wednesday, 21 March 2018 12:56 PM EDT

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said Wednesday that tariffs could help the United States.

"Standing up and putting a different perspective on this will turn out to be a very positive aspect," the congressman said on Fox Business.

He added that President Donald Trump isn't looking to pass a universal tariff, just to "make sure" individual rates are "right," and that "it's correct" to "challenge" China on trade.

McCarthy also said that he thinks "it's smart that we look at another tax plan going forward. To have more tax cuts to be able to move this economy and grow."

The majority leader added that "if you really want to get out of debt, yes, you have curve the spending in government but you have to grow the economy. You will not get out of this problem without growth. And look at conversations that you've had. We're finally getting back to 3 percent growth. Something we didn't see in the last eight years.

"It's a new administration. It's a new opportunity for America and I think it's the beginning of America's comeback," he said.

McCarthy also called to make the individual tax cuts "permanent, but like any big bill when you go through it, there are going to be other aspects that you didn't think about. Let's see where we need to go there. Let's see how this bill has transferred and changed the economy. Is there places we missed? Let's listen to the economy, and let's go back and analyze that."
