Question: Why do farmers expect (and receive) government aid when natural
disasters hurt their crop production? When my business gets hurt by factors
outside my control I don't expect or receive money from the government.
Why is farming different? What gives?
The last thing that government can do is cover any nationals disasters anymore,
without funding all will have to fend for themselves. FEMA is the last agency to
get any money so all disasters are not going to get any help from the federal
government and they need to accept that. They don't have the money, not
even the hope of bailout funds.Utah is a declared disaster area for
wildfires but funding will not make it here either. It's understandable
that disasters are not a federal priority as most disasters only affect private
citizens and they are exempt from help.
