Farm Bill

The US is again reviewing the farm bill.  Here's an interesting comment on the united opposition to it.  I'll let the Guardian author express the absurdity but, this is all you need to know...

"Another congressman, Douglas LaMalfa of California, has received $5.1m in farm subsidies since 1995. Yet, both congressmen voted against food stamps for people struggling to live on $4.50 a day for food." (guardian).

Well, I'm sure there's much more to know, but it raises interesting conflict of interest questions.

Read on news hounds.
