The sad reality is that if Farm State Republicans voted against farm subsidies, the Democrats would use that as a club to drive them from office.<quoted text>
That's what they sold themselves as, instead they're just adding to it. I don't believe they were all completely FOS from the start. I'm sure some went to DC with good intentions. Once there though, its all about the next election and who's gonna fund it. You and Carol aren't gonna fund it, not to any significant degree so I guess its gonna be agribusiness, big sugar, financials, and big oil.
Nothing is likely without strong bipartisan agreement on a range of subsidies affecting both sides of the fence.
