And you -- it into a program that's essentially propping up the production of corn -- What you do is you create a market were.
The things that are works for us and -- sweeteners processed foods.
Falsely inexpensive and you get to a situation where it's easier to feed your kids fruit loops and it is if you -- for -- And so very good point but if you let your druthers you'd at least want -- subsidizing the healthiest.
Well hey if we're going to ring gauge in propping up markets we should at least thing -- from propping up markets that we think should thrive.
Right now we have a health policy that says the food should be.
We should be hearing from more fruits and vegetables the number one thing.
And then we have a farm productivity agreement upon image sensors and more Christmas was -- -- between primary and potato is not in that particular appear I love prime rib baked -- but I really think that the issue is people eating processed food and then if we're gonna take this money in this economy particularly given to the folks of recent through that -- worse for us.
But it's really profitable sector already doesn't make any sense located just wanted to remind there is still some of the gonna break that they'll never do that.
November switched the subsidies to to -- might have.
The implications so just and the subsidies -- for everybody I think phasing out direct payments makes a lot of sense right not -- political traction for a people see that it's nonsensical policy where we're taking this money.
And we're giving that an industry that's making some healthy we should at least phase it out.

Who -- local farm economy through getting people to do right things for the while the local farmer can't or the naps on wants to do short of -- that's doing just finally subsidies especially ranges and into the big policeman we -- special interest the big -- -- them the little guys -- in the little we have 60% of growers get no subsidies at all.
5% of the recipients the subsidies.
They get nearly a quarter of their making nearly a quarter million dollars a year -- unleaded food conglomerate not talking are a little more and move a little family farm I want to talk to farmers they don't particularly wanna be dependent on the government handout they're strong independent are working people but you would be open and if if I'm not gonna get a subsidy they're not -- dozens of just ended period and -- I think you need to phase it out responsibly Bryant.
A hum because these growers have built their -- structure in the whole operation around and and they're good hardworking people and we just need to shift over time to a system -- or not.
Incentivizing them to do the wrong and you're making is you don't like the whole process food nation we -- -- because.
Not only is and they Jessica -- that it's it's compromising.
Our future and I don't see that in a lot of other countries rent we are less and less cooking your own food were less and less eating whole ingredients and we think it's real problem because public as -- before if you've got a situation with you to keep feed your kids fruit -- than it is to feed them through.
We're not -- -- its problems and for that's all right but it should be -- to feed your kids fruit and all of you practice what you preach right you.
Now the united they got on processed young guys I tend not to and it's not because I am we had a camera crew follow you today and -- No it is not because I have some moral high ground it's just because now I know the story behind that stuff and it's not a -- that the good about so it doesn't feel good deed and anymore.
-- the real thing it's not about being puritanical.
This is hey we should not -- of federal policy.
That is complete opposition.
To our health policy doesn't make any sense at all -- -- you can't be preaching.
Healthy eating and the sense of subsidizing the stuff that is on absolutely and it's worth so much sense of just your mission is going nowhere.
Seriously you very good to see.
Could this have been makes a lot of sense to us of their to know how many of these that it -- that we -- -- no sensible this guy in a few sentences made more sense.
