There are two "sugar" lobbys in congress.
One the supports the price supports, and one that doesn't.
I'd bet that many candy manufacturers are in the second group.
That being said, I buy a brand of soda that offers its product either way, and I prefer the taste of the one made with real sugar and not the HFCS.
It DOES taste better.
And either way, the government supports BOTH. One for the sugar makers, and one for the corn growers.
Imagine how much LESS we would be paying for everything if the f-ing government would just stick to its Constitutional duties.
