Conservative Split Over Tax Imperils Trump’s Overhaul

A proposed “border adjustment” tax is meeting furious opposition, threatening to jeopardize yet another signature legislative initiative.
I think this is a bad idea that will hurt consumers and not add the predicted jobs  It will likely lead to similar tariffs on US goods sold in other countries hurting exports.   I am OK with Trump jawboning manufacturers to get them to create US jobs, but this tax will actually harm US exports.
