The Farm Bill version that I read showed the 80% to SNAP but showed 12% to Con Agra and the other giant Ag companies. That only leaves 8% for the average farmer. Much of that 8% dealt with crop insurance. I guess the small family farm gets turned in to a hobby farm. With fuel prices so high and the drought we've dealt with for a few years; with the produce brought up from Mexico and the Chinese buying Smithfield; I think that small family farm might do well to open a mentoring operation to teach folks how to raise chickens and plant a back yard garden. When will we decide that we have too much Government and start voting again? Conservative's have stayed home because the candidates are so poor. We can't change directions by just sitting on the porch and complaining. That old "squeaking wheel" still gets the grease so we need to start "squeaking" louder.
Why isn't SNAP funded out of Health & Human Services? Let them squabble about funding. The mega-farmers don't need our $'s until their product hits the store shelves. Then we can decide whether we will buy American or settle for sub standard goods from those who can afford to hire the lobbyist.
