DD does it Again
Well there he goes again. Duplicitous Dave set the scribes at the Saginaw News purring when he sat down with them to try to explain what the heck he was doing voting for a trade agreement that would devastate the district's sugar beet farmers.
At least the Sag News folks didn't embarrass DD too badly since they chose to run the Aug. 2 story on Page A6. What DD told the News is that it could have been worse, you see. CAFTA isn't going to screw sugar beet farmers quite so bad as it coulda been. They will still get screwed, but not as bad. Isn't our Congressman something? What a super nice guy.
Richard Leach of the Michigan Sugar Co. wasn't buying it though. "If CAFTA is the template, it won't take very many more of these agreements before we no longer have a domestic sugar market," Leach told News reporter Barrie Barber.
