2013 Farm Bill Twitter Reactions
Readers share their thoughts on the 2013 farm bill via Twitter.  

As members of Congress discuss plans for the 2013 farm bill this week in Washington, Farm Journal asked its Twitter followers a question: On a scale of 1 (not at all) to 10 (a whole lot), how much do you care about this week's #farmbill discussion in DC? Why?

Here's what some of you said: 

1 to 4

@kraylake: "1, they could scrap the whole thing as far as I'm concerned and let the market work."

@mattreynolds03: "1, we need to be profitable independently from it to be sustainable."

@GoddessofGrain: "3 I'd rather see them separate the food programs out and make it a true #farmbill first and foremost."

5 to 7

No responses 

8 to 10

@sksullivanfarms: "10 without agriculture ee starve and the US economy totally crashes!"

@DrAlusby: "10. I teach Ag Policy. #farmbill is obviously a big chunk of the class."

@WheelersWords: "Definitely a 10. Living in #Iowa the #farmbill is huge for our state! Let's hope #congress gets it done! #ANF #farmstrong"

More reaction

@jr_womack: "When they take the carrot (money) away from producers, who cares what they do with it?"

Even Bill Gates understands the roll of agriculture better than the US Government.
