As a taxpayer, I'd rather bail out a farm than wall street.
Too bad there isn't any money left for the farms now. Capitol is dryer than the dirt.
If you have pets, stock up on pet food. It's going to double in price.
Didn't think I'd have to explain in-depth..
An agricultural bailout would go to "a farm" about as much as the Wall Street bailout went to you and me, or small banks even. Much of the Wall
Street bailout was used so that the biggest banks could buy up a lot of the smaller ones.
An agricultural bailout would go to Monsanto, Dow, and the likes, because they're the biggest producers. Those giants would then use that bailout
money (because god knows they wouldn't need it in the first place) to buy up smaller farms and further corner small farmers into submitting to their
demands. It wouldn't be pretty
