Released by U.S. Congressman Jeb Hensarling
WASHINGTON – Congressman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) – a leading conservative and chairman of the House Financial Services Committee – took to the floor this morning to urge reform of the U.S. sugar program during debate on the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management (FARRM) Act of 2013:
“We’ve all heard the phrase ‘American as apple pie,’ but it is shameful to think that every American pie has baked into it Soviet style sugar.  We have a Byzantine array of government production quotas, import quotas, and mandatory target prices. What does it do?  It destroys three jobs for every one it creates and transfers millions of dollars from working Americans to six thousand sugar growers.  It is time for us to put America back into ‘American as apple pie.’  Let’s support the amendment from the gentlemen from Pennsylvania.”
