Let me see, those are really big numbers out there. So, that is for ten years and about 80 billion a year to feed people. Now, let me see, the Bush tax cuts for the top five percent of the people(rich) have received somewhere between $800 billion to a trillion dollars and no new jobs were created. Hmmm, guess we could just let people starve to protect these rich profits. The Republican way.

High steppin talk. cramer,boehner @ ryan. He would brag about a new waterproof boot--after he stepped in a spilled puddle of crude. How about this high cost of living we r suffering from all of this nd "progress". How about explaining why gas is over $3 when oil is coming out everywhere.

Sugar locked out their employees and replaced those with lower paid workers. Not because their profits or board salaries were low. Just plain greed. That is a crop that does not need a subsidy but their republican buds protected them with a continued subsidy. Food stamp cuts were more important than reducing the subsidy to the large corporate sugar producers.

don't worry haha - the tiny cut that was made in food stamps isn't even a rounding error so you should get your full allotment. 80% food stamps and they call it a "farm bill". how come all these 'starving' people in the big cities are overweight? "this should be clear for all to see".

Every penny spent by the Fed should be public record. Like the koch's, they r embarrassed by the exposure of their financial stuff. No more millions for the honyuckers who rented the county, faked to wet to plant and farmed 4 the program only. at least now they may have to plant those section line trails they plow under; stopping legal access by their neighbors and the public.

So, what else in the bill are you not talking about, JOhn? Oh, that little item that hides the subsidies from public view? Is that the one. Yep, if you want to keep the public from knowing who gets all the big farm subsidies, just amend the law so you can hide things from the public. Good job, congressman. You must be a country music fan of "when we get behind closed doors, you can let your hair hang down!!!" Or, you can hide it.
