The Beef-Bike Tariff

nobeefnobikes_sm

By now everyone has heard about the efforts by the Beef Industry to impose a 100% tax on 51-500cc EU bikes.   If not, here is a good article:

Will the US Really Put A 100% Tax on Small, EU Motorcycles? https://www.revzilla.com/common-tread/eu-motorcycles-and-us-beef

Request to Reinstate Action Taken in Connection with European Union’s Measures Concerning Meat and Meat Products: https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=USTR-2016-0025-0001

Quite honestly I don’t like the idea of our beef either so I don’t blame them for not wanting it.  No one wants hormones and antibiotics in their food.  But we in the U.S. consume it in large quantities every year (well, I don’t so much, but! ).  The unrelated ‘we’ll tax your bike if you don’t take our beef’ imposition is ridiculous.
