CARDENAS: Do we need more immigrants?

Letter Supporting Congressman Steve Scalise's Anti-Carbon Tax Amendment

The Honorable Steve Scalise

Chairman

House Republican Study Committee

2338 Rayburn Office Building

Washington, DC 20515

Dear Chairman Scalise:

On behalf of the American Conservative Union, I am pleased to support your amendment

to the REINS Act. As you state in the amendment, a carbon tax would greatly burden

Support the Zero-for-Zero Sugar Policy

July 31, 2013

Dear Member of Congress:

Sugar is the world’s most distorted commodity market.  More than 100 countries produce sugar and more than 100 countries subsidize its production, which exposes grocery shoppers and food makers to extreme price volatility.  Free-market reform is needed to bring more certainty and stability to the marketplace for consumers.

June 19, 2013

Dear Member of Congress:

For years, we have advocated the need for a free market in sugar and believe that reform proposals put forth must not dismantle U.S. policy without first addressing the foreign subsidies that are grossly distorting world sugar prices.  Unilateral disarmament and increased dependence on foreign sugar suppliers cannot be the first step to achieving a fair and open market.

A Sweet Idea to End Worldwide Sugar War: A Free-Market Approach Would Ratchet Down Subsidies To Zero

June 7, 2013

By: Al Cardenas

As farm bill negotiations get underway, the rhetoric surrounding our nation’s sugar policy is again approaching a decibel level that likely will be rivaled only by this summer’s East Coast cicada bugfest. It’s ironic, given that we were debating this same issue during a similar insect invasion 17 years ago.
