    As long as Federal Crop Insurance is totally funded by participant premiums, I could care less how benefits are allocated.

      You missed this part..

      “The government would pay 65 percent of the premium and there would be no limit on payments”

      Where do you think the government is getting the 65% of the premium that it will pay? Not from just the participants…

    They may want to take a look at Monsanto buying the Climate Company.

    I wish the environmental groups would do their homwork. Do you guys realize you do not have to be a very big farmer to get to $750,000 gross? Ask those same farmers or any farmer what the net is by the time you pay for fertilizer, seed, farm equipment, maintenance on that equipment, maintenance on the farm buildings and the land, land tax, fuel to run the equipment, land rent, etc. The gross is far removed from the net. Also, the prices have been unusually high in the last few years. Statistically, the prices go up and down. LOOK AT THE HISTORY! Also, realize that it is important to national security to make sure our farmers can make it in extreme weather situations. How would you like to end up depending on foreign countries for most of our food? How does going hungry sound? Don’t think it could not happen. No one thought something as severe as the Holocaust could happen. No one thought our Twin Towers and the Pentagon would be hit by terrorists. Do your homework before you publish facts that you have not researched thoroughly. You should be going after our Congress who is still being paid and receiving benefits for job performance that is affecting not only our country but the entire world economy.
