    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.

    Re: ECR

    You 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.

    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.
