Farm Subsidies

I was going through newspapers that arrived while I was on vacation and came across this editorial on how dumb farm subsidies are. I really don't have anything to add here except that if somebody were serious about cleaning up the federal budget, getting rid of, or at least phasing out, farm subsidies should be a no-brainer. They're a needless use of taxpayer money for corporate welfare that unbalances the economy, contributes to global poverty, screws with the environment, worsens health, etc. Just let the market do its thing.
