FOLLOWING IS A STATEMENT FROM THE JAMES BROWN FOR CONGRESS CAMPAIGN:
Yesterday, Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro launched yet another assault against the liberties of Americans. DeLauro's SWEET Act would tax beverages one cent for every teaspoonful of sugar that it is added during production. This would raise the price of a 12-ounce can of Coca Cola by about ten cents. Americans pay enough in taxes as it is. They simply cannot afford for their grocery bills to go up.
