You do know farm subsidies go to the farmer?
There is a lot of confusion from the Progressives what the Farm bill covers and which monies go to whom.

85% of the Farm Bill goes to SNAP

9% goes to environmental programs

etc. I accidentally click away from my source.

Here is the breakdown of the 10 titles

Title I, Commodity Programs:
Income support to growers of selected
farm commodities, including wheat,
feed grains, cotton, rice, oilseeds,
peanuts, sugar, and dairy. Commod
ity support is largely through direct
payments, counter-cyclical payments
, and marketing loans. Other
support mechanisms include govern
ment purchases, marketing quotas,
and import barriers.
!
Title II, Conservation:
Environmental stewardship of farmlands and
improved management practices through land retirement and working
lands programs, among other programs geared to farmland conservation, preservation, and resource protection.
!
Title III, Agricultural Trade and Food Aid:
U.S. agriculture export and international food assistance programs, and various World Trade
Organization (WTO) obligations.
!
Title IV, Nutrition:
Domestic food and
nutrition and commodity
distribution programs, such as
food stamps and supplemental food
assistance.
!
Title V, Farm Credit:
Federal direct and guaranteed farm loan
programs. Also specifies loan eligibility rules and other policies.
!
Title VI, Rural Development:
Business and community programs for
planning, feasibility assessments, and coordination activities with other local, state, and federal programs, including rural broadband access.
!
Title VII, Research:
Agricultural research and extension programs,
including biosecurity/response, biotechnology, and organic production.
!
Title VIII, Forestry:
USDA Forest Service programs, including
forestry management, enhancemen
t, and agroforestry programs.
!
Title IX, Energy:
Bioenergy programs and grants for procurement of biobased products to support development of biorefineries and assist
eligible farmers, ranchers, and rural small businesses in purchasing renewable energy systems, as well as user education programs.
!

Other types of farm
programs and assistance,
including crop insurance, disaster assistance, animal welfare and

Kucinich had to go because he didn't always salute Obama's warmongering.

Kaptur is a labor union hack.

As for Holden, the subject was Democrats who were beaten in primaries by the more extreme elements of the Demo-Socialist party, so you figure it out.

Hire retired US Marine snipers instead with shoot-to-kill orders. Leave bodies in the field. Vultures would warn away more illegals.

George W Bush is popular again not because of Obama's speech in Germany,but because the American people like that Bush43 won't ever be in the White House again. Praise the Lord,sweet Jesus for answering America's prayer!:-D

Banks are businesses and all businesses offer incentives to their best customers to hold on to their business. For example, premium packages and/or tiered interest rates on deposits depending upon the amount deposited.

Just like buying a bigger package of whatever at the supermarket.

Got a problem with that?

The Republican War on Data

On Wednesday, the House Budget Committee voted to force the Congressional Budget Office to produce deceptive budget data. It is part of a longstanding Republican effort to prevent the government from producing data that conflicts with Republican ideology.

Do you have a problem with giving poor and working class people equal access to the same opportunities that gave rich people their most favored borrower access to the nation's cash?
