If there's one thing farmers fight even harder than losing their subsidies, it's any change that would make it clear that the subsidies are really just a big welfare program. Welfare is for crack addicts in the Bronx, not hardworking Midwest soybean farmers.

The federal farm subsidy program is so screwed up that I dont know where to begin. You then have senators from both parties in the midwest who continue to lobby for more and more farm subsidies so that they can "bring home the bacon".

This program, combined with the push for corn based ethanol is doing nothing but inflating our food costs. Unfortunately I dont see this thing ending.
