Hallelujah!!-Bush proposes to cut farm subsidies


Link

Taxpayers should NOT be paying farmers not to grow crops or to subsidize prices. Food prices will be lower and taxpayers will be able to keep more of what they earn. The Big Agriculture lobby will moan and wail and may be able to stop these cuts but I certainly hope the President and Congress will stick to their guns and take this monkey off our backs.

The President is not proposed to eliminate them completely....that is bad, all subsidies should go away....but this is a start.
