More Farmer Welfare
It appears farmers have no risk. They get paid twice for every disaster that befalls them - too much rain, not enough rain - you name the calamity they get paid twice for it. These guys are unbelievable. There hands are out so fast they are the ones that should be picking pears, not the illegals. The poignant pictures of farmers plowing under E-Coli tainted spinach take on new meaning. Tears of sorrow are tears of joy for the soon-to-be-received double Federal payments. According to the article referenced above, farm relief programs have cost taxpayers $24 billion since 2000. Farmers have to vote liberal, because this sounds like Lyndon Johnson's Great Society on steroids. With all this welfare, why are tomatoes are still $3.99 a pound?
