Block the 100% Wine Tariffs

I don't hear much noise from my fellow wine community members.  Is everyone aware of what is going on?  If not, here are some current articles to help sober you up! Everyone's livelihoods are threatened here.  Please voice your concern to your local congressman.  The more noise me make, the less likely it will go through. Let's permanently block this tariff now! Could impact 17,000 jobs, 2 Billion loss to our economy, millions of dollars generated from state taxes on wine sales, loss of consumer choice, cost-prohibitive pricing, and of course, a threat to free trade and our rights as citizens.

I say bring on the tarriffs. So, far the administration has renotigiated NAFTA (UCMCA) and got Phase one with China done ....time to put pressure on the EU commisioner hil Hogan the EU trade commisioner - not the Trump adminstration in DC working to protect all jobs...not just wine industry jobs @PhilHoganEU. >>Busy day in Washington DC yesterday incl. meetings with Senator
