New Poll Shows Voters Support Border Adjustment

Despite what well-funded retailer and special interest groups would have you believe, voters support the idea of a border adjustment, a key element of the House Blueprint for tax reform, according to a new poll out today. According to The Hill, the survey done by Harvard-Harris Poll found that 62 percent of Americans would support a “tax on all goods made outside the United States.” Additionally, the idea was supported by “77 percent of Republicans, 61 percent of Independents and 51 percent of Democrats."

The survey mirrors findings from a similar poll done earlier this year that found voters by a 2 to 1 margin voiced support for a proposal that would lower taxes on American-made exports and raise taxes on foreign imports into the United States.

Clearly, proponents of our broken tax policies are ignoring the overwhelming number of Americans who want a tax code that incentivizes domestic manufacturing, investment in U.S. businesses and, above all, unwavering support for American workers.
