Rich Farmers, Yes. Poor hungry, NO

The new farm bill assures relatively rich farmers $956 billion for the next 10 years. Taxpayers pay about 60% of the cost of insurance against low prices for farmers.  Spending on food stamps for the poor and unemployed meanwhile, will be cut $8 billion. 
     Of course, it is good that money is added to the bill to combat fraud in the food stamp and crop insurance programs, but the whole thing is a fraud.
