Actually we place a fixed amount of sugar that can be imported into the U.S. That is a quota not a tariff.
If we had a tariff on sugar, the US government would collect the tariff (tax). As it is, the people who own the quota benefit; they sell their sugar to us for at least double the world price.

I guess the Twinkie dies as a result of, YET ANOTHER, demand for employer-paid PET HEALTH INSURANCE. Unions Suck.

A lot of the baked goods market is falling into the abyss because of dietary changes.

I wonder about that. The national obesity rate is still rising. Perhaps folks are switching to other high calorie foods disguised as "healthy choice."

Thanks for explaining that. I guess Opium works in a similar way.
