Many thanks to Mr. Gerson for laying out an imprtant issue with clarity that
might otherwise be under the radar. As the world gets smaller - because of
techniology and communication gains - we need to work together as a world
community for the benefit of all. This process might not always achieve a
maximum benefit for the interests closest to home but, as this article points
out, might be more efficient in terms of money spent and the amount of good
obtained. It will be interesting to see how the Republican Congress responds to
this common sense proposal by the Democratic President.
Re: ECRYou conclusion might be wrong. It could turn out that more
resistance is going to come from the Democrat Party than the Republicans.
Especially when unions might be affected.
What part of we should not spend money we do not have our politicians do not
understand?Like defense contractors, large corporate agribusinesses
profit from this corporate welfare which is put on the charge card for future
generations.In my opiinion the small family farm is a myth.
