  • bradwilson581525 Brad Wilson The slide show calls for eliminating compensations to victims (farmers) for deficiencies, but has nothing to address the root problem (cheap farm prices). It robs from farmer Peter to pay hungry Paul. To fix that support NFFC's Food from Family Farms Act and NFU's Market Driven Inventory System, which free up about $100 billion without hurting victims. It's unknown, generally, that before giving farm subsidies, Congress lowered farm prices by about 8 times as much, to give cheap junk food ingredients, and cheap feed for CAFO meat (with subtherapeutic antibiotics) etc. to giant agribusiness corps. The Corps are much more concentrated than farmers getting subsidies. The top 4 farmers get tiny fractions of the whole, while the top 4 buyers of commodites in many categories (ie. CAFO hogs, CAFO poultry, ethanol, food and feed mills) often have more than 50% share! You have no policies for the latter, only for the former, which are victims of the latter, with net results down $3.5 trillion (vs prev. standards, 1942-1952, in 2010 dollars). 10 months ago
