I'm just puzzled tha you all want to get rid of one of the govt programs that is more or less working, and you aren't wanting to get rid of the one's you mention that are not working.
It's all very one-sided, get rid of agriculture, down with agriculture, but not a peep about the 98% of other govt waste....
Very odd, for being on an ag-related forum?
Myself, I think a couple parts of the actual ag programs are headed in the wrong direction, and it could be changed so the 'counter cyclical' portion of the program was the main piece that kicks in at bad times, and the rest could be scaled back or eliminated. I think the CRP where the gvt rents land for wildlife is a pretty good one, keeping land in private hands but keeping sportsmen happy and keeping poorer land used for recreation - but still available for hay & future farming if we need it.
The direct Payment goes to higher land prices, so is not of much value. LDP is like a lottery play, would be better to have the Counter-cyclical part be the main player. The insurance subsidies take farming in the wrong direction, tho that is what lawmakers are pushing for more of these days.
