    What gets me is that farmers are very predominately Republican, yet the GOP opposes farm programs.

    Nah, they only oppose the food stamp portion of the problem. You know, the part that goes to THOSE people.

    “What gets me is that farmers are very predominately Republican, yet the GOP opposes farm programs.”

    If they’re Republican, they’ll understand why profitable agribusiness need the government subsidies that would otherwise be wasted by independent farmers.

    We have subsidized agriculture for decades, but the 2014 farm bill begins the elimination of subsidies and replaces them with crop insurance.

    Want to have an eye opening experience? Dust off your resume, state that you have been unemployed for over six months,and apply for job openings in your area. See how easy it is to get an offer of employment that allows you a living wage.

    It is not a “Farm Bill” anymore. It is the “Food Stamps and Nutrition Bill.” 79.6% of the farm bill is dedicated to food stamps and nutrition.

    The food stamp program has not ever been cut. Maybe the increase has been slowed, but it’s never been cut. There are more people on food stamps than ever have been. There are as many people on the government dole in this county as the whole population of Australia.

    What slavery are you talking about? It doesn’t match what the comic is showing today at all. Most of the subsidies go to very rich people and corporations including liberal ones too.

    This form of Socialism is bad Socialism. It only helps those who are so rich they don’t need help. The same with the football franhizes.

    Most “conservatives” I know believe that “poor” people are poor by choice because they are averse to the alternative – WORK!
    -
    Yes a self serving lie they use to support their miserly ways.
    -
    You do know that most of them are working and had been working when they lost their good jobs through no fault of their own? We are in a silent Depression where only the working poor suffer.

    @josefw

    Now if that is true why are food subsidies being cut back then?

    many of those people run out of money and food before the end of the month. So no they don’t eat or they eat below 1,200 calories a day.
