Because Congress has failed to renew farm programs, an underlying 1949 law is slated to kick in. This would force the government to buy up American milk at inflated prices and the purchases are expected to possibly double the price of milk at the grocery store as supplies dwindle.

Um...simple solution???...repeal the 1949 law???

It’s not gonna be pretty, but I say, bring this on. Let the Republicans get blamed, hell, they’ll be blamed for everything anyway. No great loss.

No, what we need is for the flaming stupidity embodied in the American electorate to begin to understand the effect of all-encompassing government. Will it be $10/gal milk? $8/gal gas? Nobody can predict. And let’s be clear, the reactions to the failures of government programs will inevitably be more government programs. Cloward-Piven might just work both ways.

Oh just let the farm bill expire.
Blame the Democrat-controlled Congress that passed the 1949 law.

Do nothing

A. The price of milk will rise, and the demand will drop
B. The price of milk will drop, and the demand will rise
C. Repeat A & B until market equilibrium

The gov’t like any other customer can buy at any price, but since the gov’t doesn’t consume milk, sell them the spoiled milk, diluted milk, etc. The market will always find away around the gov’t.
