  •  Thanks, Ollie (5+ / 0-)

    I'm going to look up your previous diary on this.

    I'm not sure what to think of the games going on with dairy subsidies.  Where does Vilsack stand on the issue?  Is there some policy change that could benefit corporate dairy farms at the expense of smaller ones?  Is any of this related to giving more market leverage to foreign produced dairy over domestic?

    Somehow I think these policy changes are about much more than helping (or hurting) small dairy farmers.

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

    •  I think it's mostly about the teaparty congress (0+ / 0-)

      and their total inability to run the government.

      This country elected morons, and pushed out the republicans who were willing to sit down and solve problems.

      As a nation we elected people to run the government who do not believe that government can work. We should not be surprised when they try to prove that philosophy.

      They're destroying America. That was their plan, they said it was their plan, and now they're carrying it out.
