If these bills would eliminate funds going to huge conglomerates with no conscience of what they are doing to our foods, then I would be in partial agreement. Items are added to bills that have nothing to do with the titles. It is just pork barrel spending. Congress needs to get a grip on their spending.

If our unemployed were able to take the 7 million non-ag jobs currently held by illegal workers, food assistance and other costs would decrease! They should have to leave and they can take their family with them if they truly don't want to be separated.

I have retired from farming but totally feel that most Federal payments don't go to farmers but the federal machine that administers them. Why should we pay farmers to idle their land under CRP? Can't wool, cotton, milk beef compete? I tried to read some of these bills and gave up with all the double talk and I doubt our legislators have either.
