    the cost of food coming off the farm was only a small fraction of what the consumer pays at the grocery store.

    Does anyone have an analysis of the costs of food production?

    If the ACA was enforced for all farm labor contractors with stiff penalties greater than the cost to provide insurance, then the 'playing field' would be level.  All competition should be equal.  They pass the costs to the farmer and the farmer passes it to the processor or whoever he sells to.

    I'm sure the biggest whinny cats are are the mega farms that also collect the bulk of "farm subsidies".

    Holy Cow!!! 06/18/2013 and I've got my mojo back!!!! A new signature will be written shortly.
