Re: If Democrats suddenly are concerned debt

[ Edited ]

Not defending necessarily, yet there are some big differences.  Consumers (which also includes farmer) have choices, to buy or not to buy, what brand and where made -- and the sellers of those products set the prices.  Farmers sell grain, can't just keep it forever, and while they have some timing and market flexibility, they are basically taking what is offered, not setting the grain prices -- there's no denying the impact we've seen on grain prices, especially soybeans.  So, farmers are on both sides of your equation, as consumers like everyone else, and as producers of grains being sold into the market.
