All you need to know about the farm bill

Debbie Stabenow, Chariman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, said this about the farm bill that recently passed Congress and now awaits the President’s pen:

We worked long and hard to make sure that policies worked for every region of the country, for all the different kinds of agricultural production we do in our country.

It might help to remove the political obfuscation and translate this into plain English:

We worked long and hard to buy the votes needed for passage by sending pork, payoffs, and subsidies to all the major agricultural interest groups throughout the country.Troglo
