The ag govt subsidies are kinda like the minimum wage and unemployment.

If you are happy to collect them, your year ain't going so well, but the govt minumums sure help you get by until next year.

Sometimes the programs get a little out of whack, but mostly they work out to try to keep the ecconomy and food supply stable and cheap.

Just like minimum wage law and unemployment benifits are a little help, but you ain't living the good life if they are how you make your living.....

The direct payment generally just gets used up to pay hifgher rent or land prices, so it really doesn't help a farmer, it goes to widows (gals tend to outlive the guys...) and school districts and county roads (as higher tax values). So cut the Dorect Paymrent, and you all will be paying more taxes as ag land falls a little....

Be nice if a lot of subsidies for everything would be cut and we'd go back to a more practical govt, but I don't see why ag is supposed to be the only one that gets cut, energy, transportation, unions, manufaturing, and on and a=on, they all have their built in subsidies as well.

Only 20-25% of the 'Farm Budget' actually goes to farm programs, the rest is social programs like Food stamps, feeding school kids, etc. Do you really want to cut those things?
