05/16 Morning Report

Isn’t it interesting that, in a time of Federal budget deficits, and cries from the Left to cut back on Corporate welfare, that Democrats are more infaovr of the latest farm sudsidy bill to come out of Congress?

More than half the subsidies paid out from 2003 to 2005 went to 19 of the 435 congressional districts, according to the non-partisan Environmental Working Group, an opponent of the bill.

The bill almost exclusively sends money to the big agribusinesses, and does not help the individual farmer much—not that there are that many of them left anymore anway. And, just where…exactly…do the candidates stand on all this?

… McCain went to Iowa, the heart of farm country, this month to announce his opposition to the bill. On Thursday, he called it “a bloated piece of legislation that will do more harm than good for most farmers and consumers.”
Obama came out in favor of the farm bill Thursday after failing to vote on a previous version when it passed in November.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, Obama’s Democratic opponent, has supported the farm bill without reservation.

Imagine such a thing…the left in favor of MORE corporate welfare? What will they have left to blame Republicans and Conservatives for if this keeps up?
