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.

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".

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.
