I agree - let's WORK on the Farm Bill and take all the pork and subsidies to millionaires out.

I called your office to find out about how pricing and supply are regulated for raisins- and surprise - no one in your office knows any thing about this gem. and this is a very, very small piece of this bill.

So come back and report on what you are cutting back on or eliminating.

Yawn... how about prunes also, Al? I would like to see the pork taken out for farmers who drive their heavy equipment on the roads that then have to be repaired, or how about take up the whole road because they are too lazy to take the bean heads off? Farming is a respectable living, but let's not hand over the keys to the earth and the budget to them.

What are the Tea Baggers doing to pass a Farm Bill that eliminates welfare for Corporate farmers. I thought they were all about cutting wasteful spending. They have offered NOTHING to benefit the American people. After their govt shutdown debacle, here is their chance to have a positive impact on the lives of millions of Americans. Evidently they are too busy fundraising to actually pass real legislation.

hartman - take that up with Harry Reid, Amy and Franken - their pork bill does nothing for the American people but increase an already bloated farm program.

Are you joining the Tea Party to get things done?
