    The main problem with this agreement is that it leaves our rather egregious farm subsidies intact.  That wasn't taken care of in the farm bill, but it's worth pointing out that Obama has called for capping farm subsidies.

      subsidies are NOT the problem or root cause of dumping. and capping them will do nothing to address corporate consolidation of our food systems in the hands of ADM/Cargill/Smithfield.
