So now the Tea Party is responsible for farm subsidies

And yet another lib comments in the NY Times.  They just can’t even write about agriculture without complaining about the Tea Party.

He compares David Rockefeller to Michele Bachmann in this subsidy debate.  He says that Tea Party members, “happily accept subsidies”.  Is this warrented?  He also digs at Glenn Beck.  Then there is the typical leftist lines like, “Those are all benefits, which we could compound by taking those billions and using them for things like high-speed rail, fulfilling our promises to public workers, maintaining Pell grants for low-income college students or any other number of worthy, forward-thinking causes.”  Still, an interesting piece.
