Sen. Schumer: Milk prices could double if Congress doesn't pass new farm bill

Current farm bill, which dates to 2008, expired Sept. 30; a replacement has cleared the Senate but not the House of Representatives.

Sen. Charles Schumer warned Sunday that the price of milk could double if Congress doesn't pass a new farm bill.

The current farm bill, which dates to 2008, expired Sept. 30; a replacement has cleared the Senate but not the House of Representatives. Without a bill in place, Schumer (D-N.Y.) said the law would revert to 1940s-era policies requiring the government to buy dairy products at prices well above market rate. The National Milk Producers Federation says this could push milk prices above $6 a gallon

Remember. This is the same gubmint that gives you gubmint news. Don't swallow it
Susan Rice will be removed from her post for lying about Benghazi. Hillary is disgraced. Obama also lied. Our Ambassadors and patriots who risk their lives deserve better. Soon the mothers of the dead will be heard and there will be an outcry against government news like MSNBC and Obama's propaganda machine. We don't do Russia here..Ain't that right Comrade Bill?

Schumer is a joke!

He cares more about cow patties than the cost of food!

He's more worried about the pollution caused by farm animals than supply Americans with lower cost food.

As long as gas prices are climbing, food prices will climb. They are intrinsically linked.

Just watch out for Schumer and Obama's EPA...they are putting such restrictions on AMerica's farmers that are food prices are going to climb even higher.

America needs to start developing its own energy instead of depending on foreign energy (from unstable nations in continually unstable regions of the world).

Put people to work, be energy independent=Mitt Romney

BARACK "IS" BUSH, but WORSE. He kept all of Bush's policies and accelerated it with his own.

The problem is that Obama has only greatly accelerated everything Bush did wrong, and reversed everything Bush did right.

So Obama’s spending has skyrocketed the federal budget by nearly one-fourth as a percent of GDP in just one term.

Moreover, the Obama Fed has abandoned any semblance of control over monetary policy, buying most of the soaring federal debt issued to finance Obama’s record smashing federal deficits with newly printed money (actually created by computer record, a sort of cyberprinting).

A vote for Barack is a vote going backwards to Bush damage to economy for another 4 years. Bush was also a Keynesian spendster.

Paul Ryan will reign the costs in but do it in a responsible manner so that you can opt in or out of programs. RYAN WILL GIVE YOU CHOICES. Romney will leave the money in your hands to invest as he did.

The people who took care of their neighborhoods and looked after each others kids a few decades ago is becoming a memory. The brat is you. A relentless professional begging group that has no pride and no concern for others you may hurt in your agenda. And they may be your neighbors. Well the ones who had a good bead on things are fading to a distant memory. They did it on the cheap and now are considered extremists in this nation. Nothing wrong with advancing rights. Its when the advancement becomes a powerful force to overtake common sense is when it ruins things. Well the party that we have enjoyed with free money is at a crossroads. And a new party has been in place for some years and will be baring its fangs more and more as the economy declines. Shall we be a fatherland or a motherland? Past ghosts of tyranny are smiling from their graves.
