New U.S. Rules Make Foreign Goods Better Deal for Online Shoppers

I have been advocating for many years for makers and the organizations that purport to serve our communities, to organize politically. Our interests are not being represented by our elected officials. It just got much easier and cheaper for US customers to buy products from overseas due to lowered tariffs and import fees. On the other hand, US makers are still severely restricted from selling overseas by high tariffs and import duties.
