    Most of the money paid in farm subsidies goes into the pockets of Corporate Big Agro, and we know the Republicans support any program that transfers money to the big corporations without first passing through the hands of workers.  This is exactly the thing Republicans are supposed to be behind completely.  Not passing a farm bill hurts the moneyed interests more then it hurts the consumers who have to pay higher prices.

    Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your shackles. It is by the picket line and direct action that true freedom will be won, not by electing people who promise to screw us less than the other guy.

      Wants things to cost what they actually cost and many are generally opposed to corporate welfare. More than most Democrats.
