Farm groups toiled for months over a new bill, but Congress extends the old bill for nine months instead.

The Federal Gov’t borrows .46 cents for every dollar spent.
There is no money for a farm program.

If only the farm bill was an actual bill…as in billing the farmers for all the money they have received over the years.

Farmers are probably imagining millions in subsidies slipping through their hands. They may actually have to work for a living.
We had a good discussion on that socialist farm bill at coffee : “Don’t these farmers understand that when they accept federal money they lose their rights under the constitution and are under the rules stipulated by the federal government! We MUST support the House Republican Conservatives who want to reduce or eliminate subsidies and crop insurance to farmers! Farmers have to understand that simply can’t listen to “I am from the government and I am her to help”! Don’t farmers understand that if they take their help and money the farmers have to do what they are told to do! This is what got us into all this trouble now…people taking taxpayer funds! Subsidies to farmers works the same way as welfare to the poor…they ALL get dependant on the federal government…our tax money! Subsidies are a way of controlling farmers! Don’t you think it’s time these farmers acted like true Americans and stood up and took care of themselves?” We TeaPublicans WILL take back America in 2014 and 2016…and we WILL take back that socialist farm bill too!

“Teapublicans” are on the short end of the demographic stick. You guys lost in this last election and you will continue to lose ground in upcoming ones. That’s the reality of the situation now, and I don’t think the GOP let alone it’s radical right wing is going to be anymore successful than it was in this election swaying voters with their radical message. This is a free country so go ahead and try, but it’s going to be like spitting into the wind. All the growing demographic groups support the Dems and all the dwindling ones support the radical right so you will continue to lose unless you can sell your proposals to the majority. Gerrymandering can help you only so far. Good luck.
