Re: GOP Farm Bill - Welfare For Farmers 17 Billion

One of the companies eligible for the subsidies is owned by the Chinese. So Trump’s trade war with China results in the US taxpayer subsidizing some Chinese because the Chinese are not buying as much from us.

 

Will this Chinese company lay off some American workers because they aren’t selling enough to China?

   One should consider, if only for shock value the actual cost of stuff, both food and oil if it were not subsidized.    $17 B for farmers, most of which are giant ag  corporations, not small business farmers, oil subsidies for Oil corporation, not to mention the tax cuts for the uber wealthy and other corporations, and yet somehow, the generic citizen is ignored. 

    Some keep saying that unemployment is low, but that will never say the pay for the worker or how many people are working multiple jobs because the pay is so low.    

    Those are the discussions that the Repubs. don't want to have.   Instead they continue to try and do some selective genocide - the State of Arkansas is bragging about the number of people that they have eliminated from their Medicaid roles, because they don't work the required numbers of hours...how is that not selective genocide?  

 

     Ask Cole how he feels about healthcare for low income people - he is no longer bi-partisan and there in lies the bs. of the Republicans.

GOP Farm Bill - Welfare For Farmers 17 Billion

Message 4 of 4

House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (R-Texas)

 

Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) said he was “very comfortable” with where Conaway seemed to be going with the negotiations

 

“The important stuff for me, honestly, are what happens in the agriculture part of the bill,” Cole said.

 

Farm welfare, which amounts to about $17 billion annually in payments to farmers through insurance subsidies and reimbursement for crop losses or price drops.

 

HUH?

 

You Can't Manage Your FOR PROFIT Business Competitively - So All US Tax Payers  are required to subsidize you?

 

But some American kid starving & homeless is not worthy of assistance?
