Vilsack: Economy will suffer without farm bill
CNN's Ashley Killough
(CNN)- While Congress faces escalating pressure to avoid the fiscal cliff, a key Cabinet member is issuing dire warnings for the economy if Washington fails to immediately act on other vital legislation waiting in the wings.
"It is unconscionable that we don't have a farm bill," U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack said in an interview that aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "This is just historic."
The five-year farm bill, which aids farmers with price protections and subsidies, expired on September 30 after the House faced GOP division over extending the bill. Some conservative lawmakers said the newer version didn't go far enough in reform, while others said the price tag was too high, especially in provisions dealing with food stamps.

Get ready for $6 to $8 a gallon on milk, not to mention the price increase of all dairy like butter, cheese, butter... This is uncalled for.

was this vilsak guy the one they quoted as saying that rural areas have become irrelevant in today's USA?
i wonder how irrelevant we'll be when they have all their groceries shipped in from overseas.
i wonder how many people they can feed from those roof top gardens?
