Another Reason To Vote Against Bush

Remind me again how this helps consumers?

Brazilian shrimp farmers who tripled production in five years amid booming worldwide demand vowed Thursday to appeal new proposed U.S. tariffs on shrimp imports that could run as high as 67 percent for Latin America's largest country. The Bush administration also proposed imposing lower tariffs on shrimp imports on Ecuador, India and Thailand. American shrimpers claim the four countries have dumped canned and frozen warmwater shrimp and prawns at artificially low prices on the U.S. market.

Update: A dated blog post from Matthew Stimson is all over this issue.
