60 Minutes segment on the $28billion farmer bailout

Lawyers and large corporate farms exaggerate claims and include “partners” like distant family members in NYC or Miami or sub-corps or other related corps and end up raking in millions, waaay over any cap on any payment, and individual farmers get the shaft.

This sounds just like how the PPP was setup for Covid-19 small business victims.

One lawyer blamed Congress for writing the legislation without specific restrictions against being able to do that.

1. How many times do we need to see this play out?

Big corporations/Donors get bail outs and the people get the shaft. We know who the real powers behind the throne are, the ones that get all of the money all of the time.

2. Why is a farmer buried 3 feet under? So his hand can reach out for more.
