Why even bother at this point?

Why not put an export tax on the lumber to reduce this perceived 'subsidy' and use it to fund infrastructure or healthcare or any of our many other pressing needs?

Same reason the US sails ships in the Taiwan strait, it's the principal. It is doomed to fail but if we concede the field they will have no holds barred on their demands on this and every other industry we deal with them in.

Because then we'd pay the tax whereas the average American fool doesn't know that they're the ones paying it...
