Washington State One of the Least Affected States from a Trade War with Mexico
With talks of the wall along the Mexico / United States border, the question of who will pay for it? has been a common occurrence. Trump saying Mexico will pay for it. Mexico saying nope! (in a matter of words) so the idea of a border-adjusted tax would make it so if you did buy something from Mexico, you'd be taxed for it. How does this effect Washington State compared to the rest of the United States?
Fortunately, it won't effect us that much compared to the rest of the states.
The most effected will be Texas and Arizona which makes sense, but then Michigan was third. Odd.
The least effected will be Alaska, Washington D.C. and Maine. Interesting.
