In a recent front page story in The Gazette, (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) Iowa Democrats opposed Democratic farm bill principles, and spoke like Republicans instead, saying that they historical Democratic approach of running farm programs like a business was obsolete, out of date. In contrast farm bill welfarism, long touted by Republicans and, more recently by "New Democrats," was admired. This was all then rebutted one week later in a guest opinion.
The original article was:
“Farm bill inaction could turn clock back to 1949,”“Today’s farm program: welfare,” 9/2/12.
This was then greatly expanded, with footnotes as follows:
Brad Wilson, "Farm Bill: Turn Back? Take Back the Clock!" zspace, 9/3/12.
