Idaho farmer asks Congress to act

The Idaho farmer who heads the National Barley Growers Association urged Congress today to pass a farm bill before its Sept. 30 expiration date, saying the passage of a long term bill would help farmers faced with financial uncertainty.
Scott Brown, from the Soda Springs area, said the association's top priority is a "robust crop insurance program."
He also said the new farm program should continue to offer planting flexibility based on the market and that the association favors a revenue guarantee program that helps lessen the part of farmers' risk not covered by crop insurance.

Financial insecurity --

Financial insecurity -- where. Between all the already in place federal subsidies, I don't see any farmers with financial insecurity but living high on the hog.

Congrees has been acting for years, it's nonfiction time.

And let me guess,

Brown is a proponent of keeping "Big Government," out of our lives, except when it comes to subsidies.
The Browns of Soda Springs have reaped hundreds of thousands of dollars from the U.S. taxpayers.
Time to face "financial insecurity," like the majority of us Scott.

"We're all socialists now!"

Amazing how incredibly hypocritical conservatives are. Especially any politician who cries socialism, while taking a public salary.

One thing I support about this farmer...he grows barley, and I need that for my home brew!

September 19, 2010, titled "Mormon farmers grow barley for beer." Mr. Brown justifies his growing of barley for beer.
Somebody has to do it!

WHOOPIE! We're all gonna die

Some of you want the country to run on $2.87 and lint.

Heh,

Probably another one of these "free marketers" except when it's your money on the line.

Don't worry Scotty, the crooks on Wall Street will provide you with the financial "tools" that you desire. Free market, no government required. The problem is, you cannot 1. trust them and 2. they probably oversold coverage (like they did with houses) so as soon as anyone files a claim, the bank is insolvent.

The Queen will not be amused.
