Can we subsidize raspberries instead? What about arugula? Green beans? Can we make those cheaper?

Yup. Those corn subsidies do little else but fill up the coffers of gigantic Agro-business firms. They also prevent third world agriculture from stabilizing by periodically flooding their market with insanely cheap U.S food- often bankrupting huge

Numbers of small farms, and forcing families to sell all their assets. In short: Corn subs give handjobs to big Agro at the expense of the taxpayer, and they keep the third world backwards. Bad bad bad bad bad bad.

Oh yes. Let's hurt the business and people that grow your food. Grand idea.

I don't know if you knew this, but we have way too much fucking corn. That's why it gets put in Coca-Cola instead of things it should be put in, like, I don't know, corn. We will be fine without so much of it around

They make enough money on their own. Besides, maybe if they ended corn subsidies corn production could go down enough that we could start eating real food again instead of various forms of corn passed off as other things

No highly profitable industry should be subsidized.
