2 or 3 years of free trade will put all the sugar cane farmers out of business anyway. Buy it then in the foreclosure and save a billion!

If they do this deal, we might as well just turn our entire paychecks over to the state. They going to need them to pay their buddies at US Sugar.

How does a company f-up an entire eco system and then get paid more than $1 billion to allow taxpayers the opportunity to pay more to fix it?
