urbanites, prepare to shell out more to support Big Ag
My pal from Iowa sez:
And the truly impressive thing about the piece below is that conservation compliance isn't even mentioned. Apparently the big boys are so arrogant that they aren't even worried that it will be seriously debated. And if crop insurance replaces crop subsidies without any conservation compliance requirements, whoa nelly. Especially since corn growers, at least, will plant more marginal land, since taxpayers will be shouldering the risk. Good-bye to more grassland, hello to LOTS more soil erosion and water pollution.
