Local News | In battle over deficit, farm aid is on the block | Seattle Times Newspaper.

This is a contentious issue for Republicans; it’s their version of unions and democrats. Farmers are a natural fit with Republicans, all they had to do was subsidize them to keep a demographic. Now Repub leaders may have to cut that in negotiations with the administration and House Democrats.

We’ll see how it plays out, but I don’t see big political problems with R’s, just farmers saddened, and possibly hurting if wheat goes back down.
