Let’s Not Sugar-Coat the Reality

Here’s a letter to Robert Romano, who is with Americans for Limited Government (“ALG”):

The headline of your blast e-mail today reads “ALG urges Trump to enforce NAFTA and stop Mexican sugar dumping.”  Let’s reword in order to clarify just what your organization advocates:

“ALG urges Trump to protect the bloated revenues of long-coddled American sugar producers by stopping American consumers from taking advantage of low sugar prices offered by Mexicans.”

There.  That’s more clear.
