It seems to me that this bill should be called the "Food Stamp" bill. The typical voter probably has no idea that 3/4s of the farm bill is comprised of food stamps for welfare. It has the potential of giving farmers a bad name when voters think we are getting far more government subsidies than we really are. I guess congress has to disguise spending that might otherwise be unpopular with voters.
