    the economy and then lead to more subsidies to the farm part of the farm bill because.....you know, too much corn or whatever and we have to keep prices up. And then grocery business falls off and people are laid off.....

    The Democrats are very bad at messaging. Or caring I suppose.

      since either way it's consumption. Also, since corn is a world commodity, restricting what meals are tax-deductible to businesses in this shouldn't make too big a dent in demand. I do happen to know that prices are currently far too high for subsidies based on low price (most of what got paid out last year was based on low production due to the drought).
