Gabrielle performed right on queue after the sugar industry invested in her. She voted for the farm bill, which raises price supports for the sugar lobby as well as wheat and soybeans. These artificial pricing schemes lead not only to higher prices for consumers but also to overproduction. The excess sugar will be sold at below market prices for a cost to taxpayers of $1.4 billion. No wonder Giffords is raising so much money for her next campaign. She performs very well for those able to buy tickets to the show.
