Don't Fund This Program 10/12/2011 @ 2:38pm This program is ridiculous! It tips the balance for farmers to put in a fair bid for land! Not to mention costing tax payers for something that we don't need to pay for. Keep the government out, let the natural economy dictate price. Laissez Faire!

I own and operate a very successful farm and ranch. I agree there needs to be a solution to help young people get started but this isn't it!
