christmas cookies- sugar reform

In episode 46 of the Grover Norquist Show, ATR president Grover Norquist and ATR Federal Affairs Manager Justin Sykes discuss the convoluted and corrupt U.S. Sugar Program.

Since 1934, the U.S. Sugar Program has enriched the sugar industry at the expense of American consumers, businesses, and taxpayers. Currently, this program benefits a small number of those in the sugar industry with the burden falling on Americans and the U.S. economy. The sugar program forces Americans to pay an artificially high price for domestic sugar that is twice that of the world price. The high price of sugar kills jobs in food production and raises food costs for everyday Americans. The U.S. sugar program is a relic of the past, and it is imperative to reform this costly program.
