Yet again Congress shows it doesn’t matter whether it is controlled by the republicans or democrats, the only thing that matters is big business.
Congress just passed another farm subsidy bill to cover more types of agriculture. We are talking about 290 BILLION dollars!!!
Why? So multi million dollar farmers can make even more money all under the guise of helping to keep food cheap. What kills me here is this, where do they think the 290 billion is coming from?
I’ll tell you, our pockets! It is all just a facade. Yup food is cheaper at the time you buy it but after getting bent over by the tax man, the price of food isn’t so cheap anymore.
Now who is one of the biggest backers of this bill? Nancy Pelosi, who owns massive farms and is the 15th richest member of Congress, will profit from this bill through her husband. The income producing assets of her family are in her husband’s name. Pretty slick!
How slimy can people be? Well I am pretty sure that is obvious now.
Our government is corrupt on both sides of the political coin and before we run around the world telling other countries how they should do things, maybe we need to clean the crap out of our own countries’ government first.
Between Bush and Cheney and of course this Congress, we have no room to speak to anyone about how they should do things.
