Ron Kind hosts round-table listening session

La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

Congressman Ron Kind hosted a forum today to urge an end to tariffs that limit markets for their products.

The tariffs imposed by President Trump have led to retaliatory tariffs by other nations affecting Wisconsin farm products.

"We are already seeing an increase in consumer prices so the average family is going to start seeing price increases from these tariffs. Tariffs are a tax on our ability to produce goods to consumer goods and to import goods and taxes generally when they go up have an adverse impact on family budgets and we are starting to see that more and more," said Kind. 

"The clock is ticking on all of this and right now without resolution on the horizon our family farmers are going through a very brutal time and we need to be rallying around them to support them to give them the tools and the resources they need to be successful and one way they can be successful is by growing markets overseas rather than losing them right now," added Kind.
