An unemployment tariff
Is what this country needs.
To punish American companies
For their avarice and greed.
 
For laying off Americans
And exporting their jobs to Mexico.
Anything they import back here
Should bear a punitive tax load.
 
To pad their bottom line
They sacrifice American jobs.
It’s cheaper to make it in China
An unemployment tariff would even the odds.
 
The politicians don’t give a damn
They’re all set for life.
They only care about the Average Joe
When it’s re-election time.
