Sugar doesn’t come from the grocery store. It comes from American farms and American factories that support American jobs.
But those jobs are under attack. U.S. sugar prices are lower today than they were in 1980.
Despite the economic squeeze, U.S. farms are hanging on, thanks to a no-cost Farm Bill policy that’s built on loans repaid with interest instead of subsidy checks.
Amazingly, some agricultural opponents want to gut that policy and outsource America’s sugar production to heavily subsidized foreign industries.
Congress: please don’t cut America’s sugar families out of the Farm Bill.
