From Restaurant Lover…
Part of the big news, of course, is that milk won’t go up to $7 or $8 a gallon.
However, that’s due solely to subsidies.
In other words, taxpayers who don’t drink milk, rarely use it in cooking, or are lactose intolerant are bailing out the dairy farmers.
This morning on NPR, I heard more news about the subsidies that have been going on for decades. The commentators seemed to be in favor of the help.
I won’t take a side on this issue.
Instead, I have only one question: Where is the conservatives’ outrage at this continuing bailout?
They were outraged at the auto bailout, etc.
Evidently, they have selective outrage.
