(OPEN):
CONGRESS IS PREPARING TO DEBATE A NEW "FARM BILL", TO AID AMERICA'S FARMERS AND RANCHERS.  AND, THE PRICE THAT AMERICANS PAY FOR GROCERIES WILL BE A BIG PART OF THAT DEBATE.  WHEN IT COMES TO SUGAR, JACK RONEY [AS IN "TONY"]--AN ECONOMIST WITH THE "AMERICAN SUGAR ALLIANCE"--SAYS THAT CONSUMERS ARE GETTING A GREAT DEAL...

(RONEY):
"
AMERICAN FOOD-MANUFACTURERS AND CONSUMERS GET A GREAT DEAL ON SUGAR.  WHEN YOU LOOK AT WORLD-AVERAGE WHOLESALE-PRICES--IN OTHER DEVELOPED-COUNTRIES--FOOD-MANUFACTURERS THERE ARE PAYING 32-PERCENT MORE FOR THEIR SUGAR THAN AMERICAN FOOD-MANUFACTURERS ARE.  AND, WHEN WE LOOK AT THE PRICE OF SUGAR ON THE GROCERY-SHELF, WE FIND THAT--IN OTHER DEVELOPED-COUNTRIES--CONSUMERS ARE PAYING 29-PERCENT MORE FOR THEIR SUGAR THAN AMERICAN CONSUMERS DO.  SO, U-S SUGAR-POLICY IS WORKING FOR AMERICAN FOOD-MANUFACTURERS AND CONSUMERS."

(CLOSE):
