This week the World Trade Organization ruled against the United States on the issue of steel import tariffs, calling the tariffs imposed by the Bush administration illegal. The White House has a chance to head off promised international retaliation, but only if it lowers the tariffs enough to satisfy the world body — and that could lead to political costs at home. NPR's Michele Norris talks with NPR's Don Gonyea.
