USDA Joins in on Screwing Americans

Why farmers are dumping food as some Americans go hungry – The Washington Post

That should be an easy question to answer. Because the US Dept of Agriculture forces farmers to dump milk to maintain prices.

The Washington Post is something else. They’re actually going to write that milk is being dumped and then in the next paragraph say that the federal government needs to step in and help a broken food distribution system.

They never mention that it’s the government who forces farmers to dump the milk. They even imply later on that it’s processing plants asking farmers to dump milk.

The point of the article is that we need to come up with a better solution to provide food for people who are food insecure. But to read the article you would think the only way to get these people food is through food banks and other organizations.

Here’s a wild idea. If supply is really high and demand has dropped, then the price should drop. If the price drops, maybe people would be able to afford it.
