President

End the High Sugar Tariff

    1. James Mooney
    2. Petition by

      James Mooney

      Apache Junction, AZ

A recent issue of Psychology Today cites three independent studies showing that Fructose causes brain deficiencies. Yet Americans consume more and more of it in the form of High Fructose Corn Syrup. Oddly, Mexican soft drinks use sugar, despite their smaller economy. Why? Because the US has an artificially high tariff on sugar - a tax that exists for only two reasons:

1) To please corn growers and their representatives, since HFCS comes from corn.
2) To punish sugar-growing Cuba for daring to be Communist, even though we have made our entire economy dependent on equally Communist China.

So we are feeding our kids, who drink a lot of soda, brain poison, when brains are needed more and more in a tough economy. All to please giant corn growers and Cuba-haters.
