U.S. Senate (and Presidential) disgrace
The U.S. Senate sidetracked a move to eliminate the $5 BILLION dollar annual subsidy for farm-belt corn farmers and corporations, among others. I guess some folks would rather cut programs that may actually help needy people than eliminate an outrageous example of the American kleptocracy at work. Our President was against eliminating the subsidy. It's not often we get a chance to separate the sheep from the goats in Congress. It shouldn't be hard to figure out who really cares about fair and sensible spending and deficit reductions. Those who voted against elimination of the subsidy have shown their true stripes.
