    There are great goals and intentions here, but on the Farm Bill commodity Title issues (ie. the issue seen as being about farm subsidies), the biggest issues are missed, and instead, activism is limited to small subsidy reductions to larger victims. It also misses the biggest savings that could free up money for other purposes. Farm commodity subsidies are compensations for massive reductions in farm prices and incomes. They've never been needed, except to compensate for the reduction of Price Floors and Set Asides (Supply Management) that lowered farm prices. To merely cut subsidies doesn't fix cheap corn, sugar, milk, cotton, etc. prices from AgBiz corporations (ie. Cargill, Dean Foods) any more than cutting SNAP (food stamps) makes Walmart pay higher wages. So subsidy reforms really do nothing, (and are only possible in bad farm bills anyway). We need to eliminate the need for subsidies by restoring fair trade, living wage farm commodity Price Floors. These have been the major Farm Justice concerns in the farm bill for the past 60 years, but the new food leaders, as here, don't usually know about them.
