The top Democrat on the House Agriculture Committee insists farmers need the money.

WASHINGTON ― Democrats are doing the Trump administration a favor that Republicans wouldn’t have done for Obama.

President Donald Trump has given so much extra money to American farms harmed by his trade policy that the U.S. Department of Agriculture is nearing a legal limit.

Now lawmakers are stepping in to save the farm bailout, boosting the USDA’s borrowing authority so it can continue to pay farmers who are unable to sell soybeans and other crops to Chinese buyers because of the Trump trade war.

The House approved a resolution Thursday by a mostly Democratic 301-123 vote to fund the government until Nov. 21. The resolution, which the Senate will likely approve next week, included language the Trump administration wanted to keep the farm funds flowing.

Farmer welfare? Sounds like socialism to me. What do you think?

Farmers who voted for Trump should not receive any bailout money.

I wonder how many members of Congress will be receiving farm bailout funds? Like Senator Grassley and other GOP members.

Farmers have been subsidized since the days of FDR. They have the toughest and most stressful job there is and we need them to be successful.
That doesn't mean knowingly fuck them and then have taxpayers bail them out. Why are Democrats bailing Trump out?

And they can be successful on their own merits. People should not be paying taxes that are redistributed to farmers - instead we need to pay what the actual cost of food is at the market.

That is the ONLY way you can make real and informed market decisions.

Yup and Congress like everyone else likes to eat.

Subsidies for farmers are great for all of America because all of America likes to eat.
