Should Government Restrict the Candy Supply?
Somehow I don’t trust government to do the right thing.
Check it out:
What happens if there are too many Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in the marketplace? What if there’s an influx of imported jelly beans? This simply can’t be allowed. The federal government must restrict supply to ensure that all children can enjoy the right amount of candy this Halloween at the right price.
This is a trick, of course.
However, the sugar program, which is even worse than this proposed candy program, isn’t a trick. When the public must pay higher prices for food, and jobs are lost, it certainly isn’t a treat, either.
The program uses almost every gimmick in the central planning playbook to help sugar producers at the expense of taxpayers, consumers, and sugar-using manufacturers.
