Fiscal cliff deal

Does anybody know if the SURE program was included in the deal that the Senate passed as well as the direct payments?

Re: Fiscal cliff deal

A extension of the current farm bill was included in Senate fiscal cliff deal. So breath easy, you can coninue to suck off the Gov't teat with direct payments, SURE and subsidised crop insurance.

Just as the millions of welfare sponges.  I didn't qualify for the 2011 SURE payments.  Turns out my crops were to good.  Man it sucks I can't get my fair share! :smileymad:

Re: Fiscal cliff deal

I don't think so. SURE has already expired and none of the expired programs without funding are in the Senate bill. Direct Payments will continue for another year

Re: Fiscal cliff deal

Sure was dropped for 2012 by the previous farm bill, so I doubt that it is included in the extension.  I am not certain, but that is my guess.

Care to explain that one? Pretty sure grain farmers get way more subsidy money than dairy farmers. Oh, and our product(s) needs to stand on it's own..... no Gov't mandate to use it like ethanol.

Congress Passes Fiscal Crisis Bill

  • Fox News

  • House passes Senate bill halting massive in tax hikes and delaying spending cuts in a 257-167 vote despite some House Republicans' concerns, and Obama says he will sign it.

60% of the time, it works every time.
