  •  One good way to cut subsidies is limit it to small (0+ / 0-)

    actively farming farmers, with a tight definition of both 'small'  and 'actively farming'  and eliminating all those who farm on contract for the big guys and have to pass along either in price discounts or other ways whatever farming subs the little guys get. And then cap the amount. That would help a good bit but not Tyson and those others who collect like bandits and give a part of their swag to Congresscritters to keep the money river flowing. That much money for fifteen congressional districts is absurd.
