Disclaimer: I am a conservative so there is transparency The Dems have hammered thru a farm bill that will cost the taxpayers (you) $300 billion. Commodity prices for corn, soybeans and wheat are at record levels, some twice as high as only a couple years ago and farm revenues are absolutely sky rocketing as farm incomes have increased 56% in 2 years. 100s of millions of dollars will even go to farmers who have not planted in years, by virtue of their *historical planting average.* BTW a lot of gutless Republicans will vote for this rape of the taxpayer too. I mentioned this in another post but some of these record commodities costs are due to a bad monetary policy by the Feds and some by the purely stupid *ethanol* boondoggle being rammed down our throats by the junk science dim wit do gooders who see renewable energy as our savior. Most of this can be found in the only newspaper of journalistic honesty, the Wall Street Journal.
