But it is a tax you choose.
If you don't want to pay the tax, don't buy the product. Simple as that.
Almost every other tax we have is just shoved down our throat, no choice.
It is a slippery slope though, because the identical or nearly identical items that are not tariffed may feel they can get away with charging more just because they can. Not exactly a free market, but China does not like a free market...…..
Ok great!! That's exactly right! In that same mindset, lets jump the local sales taxes and fuel taxes!!..... Same mindset, we CHOOSE to buy those products, so we will choose to pay those taxes!! ..... Correct???
