I guess writing is a lost art.
The govt is not buying “swine”. Obama announced this week here in Iowa that the government is buying “pork” for the school lunch programs.
Of course the govt is always buying products for the school lunch program; and probably was already buying these pork products.
Paul Ryan should seek to separate food stamps and school lunch programs from the ‘farm program’ They are the great majority of the spending programs and farmers get blamed for it. The farm program should only consist of crop insurance [drought insurance] and perhaps a price floor to cover production costs to keep agriculture healthy and not subject to squeezes by conglomerates pressures. We all need to eat, remember?
