Yes, there have been times when the program has been questioned and it probably does need a serious look by the Congress. But, must it too be another "let's beat up on Trump" item?


You mean wealth redistribution is good when the Republicans do it?

Which private organization will be given the task of administering the money..with their finger on the scale.

He's buying back votes he's lost with taxpayer money.

LOL....what a dance.....

 

The government has NEVER assisted farmers simply because they were negatively impacted by other government actions.

   Ignoblers have wasted a lot of time complaining of all the processes that they call Socialism, which they say they hate.    One has to wonder what they will say when donald annouces a $12 Billion program to bail out farmers who are losing cash because of the donald tariffs gambit , which was supposed to be an easy win.
