We ought not be worried that China is sending us cheap imports, and tariffs aren’t the answer. If we impose a Tariff we will simply exchange cheap goods and a negative balance of trade for expensive domestic goods with a net negative use of resources. What we should be worried about is the fact that china is doing so much more than we are to enable their citizenry to work and be productive (including better education), much of it is low hanging fruit that we’ve already picked and eaten, but that doesn’t change the story. Either we can choose to be part of China’s success and prosperity, or we can choose to be left out of it, there is no way for us to work the tariffs that stops their meteoric rise, only their own occasional bouts of incompetence can do that, just like our own how us back.
