 The US produces some sugar locally in Florida, Louisiana, and Hawaii.

Sugar isn't an essential food and yet its massively subsidized.  In fact corn is subsidized more as a sugar source than as food source.

The corn, sugar and other lobbies are strong.  The guys who grow lettuce and tomatoes aren't so lucky.
