Sugar subsidies – neither Democratic nor Republican, yet hard to resist:

There’s an opinion post on U.S. News on American sugar subsidies, identifying that it works with neither the right nor the left in terms of ideology.

From the article:

[I]t requires quite a demonstration of moral flexibility for liberals to claim the mantle of being “for the 99 percent” while redistributing dollars away from the middle class and toward the already rich. On the other hand, conservatives who argue the merits of free enterprise … but shrug off public policy that rigs the system in favor of special interests are doing more to sully the name of capitalism than any 10 social welfare Democrats combined.
