Completely agree - but remember farmers are close to being socialists.

They operate with federally insured revenue protection insurance policies. Really can’t think of another business where the government promises that you won’t lose money.

Farmers live on government protection. But they scream about very other program that replaces income - unemployment - welfare - whatever. They wear their MAGA hats bought with the price support revenues that rest of us taxpayers pay for.

According to the linked farm bureau article - about 80 percent of corn, soy, wheat and cotton crops already have price protection insurance. My guess is Trump is busy bailing out farmers who made the decision to go without price protection insurance.
