No one is suggesting you should pay more than they're worth.
Conversely, you also should not be able--at the expense of hard working AMERICAN citrus farmers--to get them for *less* than they're worth either.
Did you read the part of the article that details what happened to Florida tomato growers as a result of NAFTA?
I'm all for lower prices, but dumping South American citrus into the US is killing the entire stateside citrus industry. Let's allow them to be completely killed off so we'll *have* to buy it from overseas, then see what happens to the price when there are NO American farmers growing it...huh?

I should not be able to buy anything at less than the fair market value, and the fair market value of a product must also include the costs of keeping Americans employed.
Did I get that right? That is your position?
