During the Great Depression the federal government passed the Agricultural Adjustment Act (AAA) which paid farmers to destroy their crops in order to raise the price of food. This occurred while people were starving to death in the cities, opinions?
Wouldn't the govt buying the crops and giving the food to the hungry people work exactly the same? Not that I like that much either, but isn't that the better option?
One of the few things FDR enacted that I don't agree with. Feeding people is more important than the economy.
LOL. That probably nails it as being the Dems. If it was Republicans you'd think it mattered very much and would have answered with glee.
"Bad"? Immoral corruption.
Who did that? Republicans or Dems?
How does it matter? A crime against humanity regardless.
Meant to reply here but it crashed and when I came back in it was a new comment. Sorry.
It was dominated by democrats.
Guys, I cannot get SOH to load thru the app. So, I went to the website. Can anyone help me?
I couldn't figure out the website either - sorry
Reinstall the app?
This still happens today!! Don't be fooled
True. It is amazing the level of Federal involvement controlling farm production.
Why would that be good?
Consumerism was down so food stockpiles made food businesses go out of business.
