Agribusiness wins, struggling families lose.
I wish people would be as concerned about farm subsidies as they are about how awful it is that people are getting assistance from food stamps during a depression.
I wonder what Casey Mulligan would say about this. We're taking away $110 million in means tested income assistance (which is supposed to be what's propping up unemployment, right?) and subsidizing production with the money. What do you think? If you think these supply-side problems are a big deal this should be great policy!
