Re: Medicaid and Nursing homes

If telling the truth about farm subsidies as whinny, I'll take whinny evert time.  the country is 20 t in debt and increasing by giving tax dollars support to wealthy farmers who don't need it.

 

those everybody and anybody who can afford getting in to farming now days are family palfcalfs who inherit the land, money, machinery along with the govt welfare.

Re: Medicaid and Nursing homes

We agree about cutting waste and farm subsidies, Hobby. Who did you vote for this last fall that made that an issue?

Agreed, way to much debt, thank-you President Obama for 10 Trillion of that 20 Trillion.  Also agree that cut backs are needed in all areas of government including farmers various government payments, also including SS.  However, how much of that $20 Trillion has went to farmers? Not the USDA budget which is 80+-% food & nutrition programs, how much to farmers?

Also, Trump has reductions in agriculture subsidy payments in his proposed budget, would Hillary do that?  Looks like Trump is doing exactly what you are asking for - can one assume you are on the Trump train now?

 

(those everybody and anybody who can afford getting in to farming now days...)

 

Make up your mind, I thought farming was so financially enriching, now your saying a person cannot afford to farm.  You can't have it both ways.

 

(...are family palfcalfs who inherit the land, money, machinery along with the govt welfare.)

 

I don't know what palfcalfs are but don't most non-farm family business' (land, money, machinery) get passed on to their children?

A pail calf is an orphan calf feed from a pail. My grandpa was a pail calf. He was orphaned at age 14. He lived with neighbors for room and board until he turned 18. He than joined the army so he had a home.
