I noticed that they printed a little joke in this article:
Removing the tariff would cut 29 cents from the U.S. price of a gallon of imported orange juice concentrate, making for cheaper orange juice on American breakfast tables.
Like someone said once, "Wheat goes up, bread goes up. Wheat comes down, bread stays up."

(No one is listening until you make a mistake.)
As the article pointed out, the same thing happened to tomatoes imported from Mexico but the price of tomato products has not dropped. If I were in charge, I'd withdraw from most all the free trade agremments, raise tariffs, and cut the federal income tax to a 5% flat tax with no exemptions. In ten years the federal govenment would have more revenue than it has today.
