Agribusiness Subsidy Cuts Could Save Food Stamps in the Farm Bill

The House Farm Bill would also expand subsidies for agriculture by nearly $9 billion at a time when the farm sector is historically strong, especially compared to the rest of the economy, and makes these subsidies permanent law.

Increasing the subsidies does not make economic sense and is not fiscally conservative by any definition. Thanks for this article that shows the House wants to take food out of babies' mouths to increase corporate agriculture's profits.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. This bill should not be reconciled and passed without SNAP. To do it would just be absolutely disgraceful and a middle finger to the 99%. I have sent letters to my Congress critters.

Must the children continue to go to bed hungry?

We and animal rights people everywhere have fought hard to get subsidies elimnated for agribusiness. These are the people who bring you CAFOs and inhumane conditions as well as environmentally disastrous practices. I'd hate to see Food Stamps go but if the price is stopping CAFOs then it's a good thing. Unfair to couple this stuff together and a legislative sneaky practice that must be banned. One bill, one item, one outcome.

Well, of course. To Republicans, businesses are responsible job creator and hungry children are just lazy leeches.

Noted. Again, it's the children. GOP/Tea Party wants to eradicate the middle class by making them the new poor. The poor they want to die of starvation or abuse. Who's left to buy the over-priced juck from their cronies??
