I really don't get tire tarriffs

Brad delong is right.  

I'm really confused by this move.  But then political economy continues to baffle me.  Maybe this is intended to buy a vote or two in the senate for the health care bill?  I could imagine that such a policy might buy a blue dog vote or two, and that could make a difference.

But on its own merits, this is a really bad idea.
