He may also want to call Reid and suggest he come clean about his lie. After all, his re-election is at stake.

What happened to the man of integrity who ran in 2008 and promised us hope and change. He's turned out to be exactly the opposite of what he projected himself to be.

Absolutely. It is amazing what a telepromptor can do for a politician!

In 1982 we had Ronald Regan, Johnny Cash and Bob Hope. In 2012 we have Obama, no cash and no hope!

He shouldn't act like he is going to do it. Of course congress would pass a farm bill even without his input, so he shouldn't try and take all the credit for it.

That is what he does best, except for the taking credit for the very poor job he has done. That was Bush's fault.

Drought relief for farmers is an unacceptable bailout.

Farms are businesses.
Let them go bankrupt just as they believe that those who work at industrial jobs should.

Freeloading farmers, that are, already, in moocher states that receive more from their federal taxes then they put in.

http://taxfoundation.org/article/federal-taxes-paid-vs-federal-spending-received-state-1981-2005

Those freeloaders, in moocher states, constantly whine about how their libertarian ideal that people should take personal responsibility for their actions. They persistently push the idea of self-reliance for those in the cities that have been put out of work by the great recession caused by the actions of the Republicans for whom they vote.

There should be consequences for ones actions.

These states and these farmers did not properly properly plan for and invest for the obvious risk of drought. They keep their taxes low and rely on others.

There is no reason to provide farmers with a bailout.

Farm produce prices will go up as a result of this drought.

If we give these freeloading farmers a bailout, they will get the money now from taxpayers in the cities and then get even more profit when those of us in cities have to pay even higher prices for their product.

The freeloaders, who chose not to plan and act, who already take more than their share, will get a bailout and a price increase.

I agree, Let their be consequencies for the actions and greed of farmers. Most of the Larger Industrial Farms are a plenty greedy lot. they seem a lot like churches always asking for something but providing nothing in return. I would love a John Deere Tractor but I get no tax breaks to purchase one for my 25 acres.
