Congress drives its muck-spreader across farms again

Editors, Washington Examiner

The government should get out of farming entirely. Sadly, the only part of the farm bill that seems to be on the chopping block is the food stamp program, which assuredly needs reform. Food stamp rolls are 50 percent higher than they were before the financial crisis, 42 million households, up from 28 million in 2008. But if you’re getting tough on people making $30,000 a year, it is also time to stop sending fat checks to farmers with six-figure incomes. This won’t happen until the party supposedly committed to free enterprise stops voting for farm socialism.
