Indeed, a few weeks later, the USDA announced another $16 billion in trade-related aid to farmers. It came on top of the previous year's $12 billion package, for a grand total of $28 billion in two years. About $19 billion of that money had been paid out by the end of 2019, and the rest will be paid in 2020.
---------------------------------
and the 28 billion came from us the taxpayers and with no action by congress, for a trade war he started!!

I agree that farm subsidies are out of hand

All nations subsidize their farmers as a way to insure food security

But we should not subsidize the farmers for exports

$28 billion is about what the federal government spends in about 2 days.

Scale matters here.

Many people have objected. I can remember Rush Limbaugh objecting this back in the mid-2000s. I have consistently objected to it forever.

Many conservatives have objected to giving tax money to wealthy billionaires.

What is odd, is that people who claim to be against giving money to wealthy billionaires, do NOT object to this.

That is because they still think it is going to mom and pop out fits when it fact it is going to mega farms so the billionares are still getting it.

Did you know during last year, the lazy fucking liberals who sit in their parents basement doing nothing, got 1 trillion dollars of welfare? You sure do bitch a lot about people who actually provide stuff to you, yet you just cant say "Thank You" for making me happy. Of course no matter what a progressive is never happy...

They all do that. Everyone thinks their subsidy that they like, is going to salt-of-the-earth companies and businesses.

In reality it's wealthy elite politicians, typically democrats using social justice reasoning, to give taxes from poor people, to wealthy elite political backers.

Capitalism? We're talking about government taking money from the public, to give to political backers.

Free-market capitalism is people engaging in voluntary exchange.

Notice how those two ideas are mutually exclusive?

I truly am ignorant as to how this is capitalism.
With the pandemic hoax, Leftists hope to destroy America by killing off all small and medium business.
Their hope is that they can bring America economically to it's knees and implement Socialism, where
history PROVES every attempt was utter failure and economic catastrophe.

In what can only be called, the most persistent fallacious mentality in human history, many leftist
erroneously believe that having government's iron grip controlling all is the path to Utopia.
But as in Venezuela, it is only a path to self destruction.

While capitalism in America may not be perfect.......nothing is. And it's as close to perfection as humans can get.

Perhaps you would do yourself a favor to at least learn what capitalism is before you complain about it.
If you believe Socialism is already in place.....that's sad. Truly sad.

You never did explain how taking money from taxpayers to give to corporations is capitalism. I'm trying to learn. Where does capitalism instruct this?
