Splitting the Farm Bill is Only the First Step Towards Reforms

Leading up to the fortunate failure of the Farm Bill on the floor of the House in June, conservatives have been urging Congress to separate the agricultural parts of the bill from the food stamp programs so that each major program could be debated and reformed on its own merits. The House leadership has responded by actually splitting the bill and offering an agriculture-only bill, which is an excellent move on their part.

Farm Bill - Prolonging the Food Stamp Tragedy and Farm Subsidies

Democracy and Power 113: Vote Trading“I’ll vote for your legislation, if you’ll vote for mine.” This is never said in public, but occurs constantly. Regularly, our leadership requests legislation, and a politician agrees to the request if our leadership includes his project. Politicians trade votes for their respective benefit, which is seldom for the benefit of Americans.

“Farm” Bill, Really?

On June 3rd, the Senate will resume deliberations on the nearly $1 trillion dollar “Farm” bill. However, the majority of the “farm” bill does not actually deal with agriculture or farms.  In fact, food and nutrition assistance programs (food stamps) such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) comprise roughly 80% of the farm bill, costing tens of billions of dollars.

The Fallacy of Government Assistance

Throughout American history, there have always been those that have fallen on hard times.  From British poor laws, brought over by the colonists, to today’s myriad of welfare programs, America has a strong foundation of seeking to help those in need.  However, what started as a very simple program has become convoluted, corrupted and ultimately fails to lift people from poverty to prosperity.  While examples of government assistance failures abound, none may be so evident as that of the current situation in New Mexico.
