!2 billion???? who gets left out

Does anyone in DC have a calculator?   Soybean production about 4,600,000,000 bushels.  $1.65 per bushel is $7,590,000,000. This whole package is priced at 48% of production.  So the question is who gets left out?

Re: !2 billion???? who gets left out

Leave it to the government to have stupid mathematics, like figuring SS tax "Take .9274% of your income times 15.3% and that`s your SS tax" ...why not just say "take 14.19% times your income"??   And with the bean bailout why not "80 cents a bushel" instead of  "divide this by that and subtract that and kill a chicken under a full moon"?  

 

Or if they want to give the illusion of giving out a lot of money say "the payment is $6.60 per bushel, but divide by 4"  Smiley Very Happy

Most likely soybean growers who are not in the "farm program."

Ask  The  Kansas  Corn  Growers  Ken McCauley  about  his  thoughts  on  the  .01/ bushel   '''  rebate '''  -   -   -

 

Although  $200,000,000.oo  is  in  place  as  a  ''''  discovery  of  NEW  markets  ''''   as  a   ''' nice  gesture  '''  -  interesting,   exploitation  or  exploration  is  the  ?

$12 Billion? Get real, Everyone is getting " gamed " to

Nothing on this.

 

that is how Gaming Works.

 

beans are going up soooo...farmers don't need the $12 Bill anyway....that's how gaming works.

 

trump is a gamer and the rest of the govt will now follow his supposedly acceptable example for decades now and on forward.

Re: !2 billion???? who gets left out

My understanding is you have to sign the paper that says you farm nice.  You don't have to take ARC or PL? or anything.  So, I guess half in/half out of the farm program.  I'm all out so I don't get anything.  That's OK with me, I think the whole farm program should be gutted.
