You are totally correct. The farm bill was set up to help the large corporate farms, and do little to help family farms. As lobbyists continue to control our government, and more and more former congressional employees work for lobbyists, this will continue. We need to take the money out of campaigns, and get rid of Citizens United. That would help a little.

Hey nate, it is odd then that we do not see any demonstrations by liberals for a living wage for the farmers.we see demonstrations for higher wages at fast food places, retailers, but not farmers. funny too that in NY a farmer cannot frack on his own land. even Obama has seen the boom from fracking in the rest of US. But in NY , our local liberals, twitching from end of the world scenarios stop all attempts at fracking. I would guess that fuel and fertilizer are your biggest costs. I see nothing from our govt to get these prices lower. Thats how stupid our govt has become.
