Seeing more stuff like this...  


The drip-drip of subsidy reform efforts might actually work eventually.

I understand her point and agree with it, but the numbers she is using are ridiculous.
She states that the sugar quota costs the U.S. $3 billion/year.
She then claims that each sugar farmer gains $3 million/year from the artificially inflated prices.
Using those numbers suggests that there are roughly 1,000 sugar farmers in America.
There are somewhere in the neighborhood of 10,000 sugar beet growers in the country not to mention all of the cane growers.
If one of her numbers is off by at least a factor of 10, it makes your question the validity of her other information.
