I don't know much about this topic. What I do find amusing is how people who don't know anything, Google a topic they know nothing about. Then they hurry up and go to trib**** and post a comment with information they Googled to make them sound "educated". They do it with every topic.

Daniel you know as well as i do that there is more to that then what you posted. Do the dairy producers and production employees not deserve a fair price?

$5.6 billion spent annually on crop insurance subsidies and the $1.3 billion we spend on milk subsidies.

That is Corporate Welfare. What do you call it? Giving food to a person with no money is a "Handout" Giving a business with money some free money is called what? any answers?

My guess is that you right-wingers call it, "But I deserve it, Its called working hard and I built that!"

Just googled it for Elusive. The Government gives them free money. that equals "Corporate Welfare Checks" So, with this being a fact rocket91, who is the one with a moronic statement? Please think and have some facts before making a fool of yourself by posting something that back fires on you. Would save you the embarrassment.
