I'm not completely sure of that. Offshoring is a symptom, the cause is higher labor rates at home. I know a lot of stuff is being made in China and Mexico, but I wouldn't want to live in either location and make what they do. Protectionism is for the weak and will not help our economy. Innovation is where we need to be. Let everyone in every other country in the world make our stuff, I'm okay with that. So long as we designed it, financed it, consulted on it, etc.

import taxes should be used to fund EPA, OSHA, LABOR BOARDS, FDA and every other organization that companies are avoiding by moving over seas.

People complain about air quality here from factories then they are the same ones who complain about losing jobs to Mexico and China where we move the factories then they complain that the minimum wage is too low. You can't have it all.

Higher wages are a part of the equation. Another part is the corporate taxes. Corporations dont pay taxes even they they get taxed. They pass those taxes onto the consumers. So we all pay hidden taxes in most goods that we purchase. Instead of reducing the corporate tax rates, why not completely eliminating it?

In short, because those taxes would have to get displaced and the pain of change there is too great. At best it would cause a temporary hyper-inflation. At worst, it destroys the ability to finance anything for a decade.
