Should the government subsidize farmers?

“President Trump declared a $12 billion program of farm subsidies to aid farmers hurt by his escalating trade war with China.
Proponents argue that the subsidies are necessary since net farm income has declined. Opponents say that the farmers who are not even producing are getting subsidies.
What do you think? Should the government subsidize farmers?”

Today is the day. Now is the moment. Vote for change.

    China pays their farms $11.00 a bushel to grow wheat to put the United State farms out of business
    so they can starve the united state and take us over!

    Always support the farmer. Without the farmer you would starve.

    The tariffs targeted at China are a great idea to level the playing field however, our farmers got caught in the middle and need help to survive. So Yes they should have help in the form of subsidized assistance.

      Sorry Dean, Tariffs are nothing more then a tax and it is the end users that end up footing the bill bail them out and then we get to also pay for more costly products. Sorry the farmers have been sucking on the government teet way to long, and they are not the only ones. Why should the tax payers have to bail out the farmers for something the government has done? In this case increasing tariffs. Everyone talks about free and fair trade, tariffs are neither when it comes to trade.

    In my opinion farm subsidaries should in itself end for the time being, in order to allow enough produce within CONUS, and our territories in order to bring down the prices of our grocery bill, stop this unfair practice of lack of supply in order to drive up prices
