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?

There are a lot of excellent research and statistical things they also do, which are essential functions in my opinion.

But you are correct, most of the $$ goes outside of production agriculture into welfare type of programs.
