USDA Announces County Rates for Trump Tariff Farm Welfare

Prior to voting against suspending the debt ceiling for two years yesterday, Congressman Dusty Johnson expressed his support for another imperfect plan for more deficit spending to socialistically prop up South Dakotaís Trump-battered farmers:




The USDA yesterday laid out the county by county rates it will pay farmers for the damage theyíve suffered under Trumpís reckless tariffs. The Trump Administration apparently isnít differentiating these welfare payments based on which crops farmers plant, or how much their land historically yields or actually yields this year, or how much any given farmer actually loses in sales. As long as a farmer plants one of 28 commodity crops* (few of which would actually show up for immediate consumption at your local farmerís market), they can cash in on the single county payment rates.

The minimum payment is $15 per acre. South Dakota counties getting stiffed with that rate are all West River: Bennett, Butte, Custer, Dewey, Fall River, Haakon, Lawrence, Meade, Oglala Lakota, Pennington, Perkins, and Ziebach. SOme East River counties can get more than four times that per-acre rate:

Trumpistanis are calling Democrats communists. But the Trump Administration is paying farmers fixed rates regardless of specific crops planted or produced, which sounds more like good old Soviet farming than anything the majority party in the House has proposed. When Congressman Dusty Johnson praises this plan, isnít he praising Communism?
