Obama supports the Farm Bill

Small government types shouldn’t be surprised by Obama’s endorsement of the massive Farm Bill; if Obama does become President, don’t expect a small, efficient and less costly government.

unfortunately Obama was not alone. My Senators Alexander and Corker, men who I generally think of as principled and rational fiscal conservatives, also supported the bill. Apparently, according to Bob Novak, the Republican opposition was phony and Bush let Republicans know if was OK to support this terrible bill. Even Republican leaders supported it. My own Congressman, Democrat Jim Cooper voted against it. This farm bill is one of the reasons I am a very disgruntled Republican. I have a list on my site showing all Senators voted and link to house vote list. rod
