The government doesn't make money, it takes it. I don't know one farmer who's hurting. Crop insurance allows them to claim any loses and then they sell the rest of the crop for feed. All there new vehicles and equipment are claimed towards the farm for tax write offs.
Why do you think the primaries start in Farm country? To insure the passage of the farm bill every single year with no cuts.
I don't mind a safety net for a limited time to those in need but if the economy is so great, shouldn't food stamps have already been cut in half? Food Stamps should never be a lifestyle but it is for a majority of those on it.
The government pays Schools to feed these low income kids 3 meals a day and then pays for those same 3 meals a day as if they were at home instead of school then complain because these kids are going hungry because their crappy parents are selling the food stamps for cash instead of feeding their multiple kids and schools should feed the kids even during summer months when closed.
The cycle doesn't end no matter how much money you throw at it, it just gets worse. Look at where it started, during the depression where it was required you work to get funds to where it's at now.
