    That's funny. I'm not rich and greatly benefited from the tax cut

    The left complain about billions going to help our farmers, while at least 20 times that is wasted on illegals in this country and their families.

    Farmer subsidies are kind of what brought the Democrats to power in the south... kind of crazy how that script is getting flipped.

    Farmers, the new welfare queens. If they can't make it they should find a better job. Work a little harder maybe. It's their own fault.

    Take the tax money that shouldn't go to nato, and help OUR people that work.
    Not like welfare people, eat, sleep and poop out puppies.

    The left is complaining about this? You realize that this is a leftist policy, right? The only reason the left doesn’t like it is because they hate everything Trump does.

    We are all subsidizing this policy now. If this doesn’t payoff as intended, there should be a lot of angry conservatives. There is a well documented history of this being a disaster, which is why free market people were against it from the beginning. Maybe Trump will be different, but that is at best a wish at this point.

    It continues to amaze me that some of you have abandoned so many things conservatives believe in order to avoid committing the cardinal sin of saying something bad about one of Trump’s policies.

    What the left hates about this is that the problem was created because of an ill advised government policy. We have no complaint about the government providing aid to people when stuff happens beyond their control. Like this for example.

    Farmers aren't the only people these tariffs are going to negatively impact.

    PS. Google Whirlpool news.

    The irony is not lost because many Americans believe in free markets, except when Uncle Sugar is willing to offer a hand (bailouts, coporate welfare, famers’ welfare, social welfare. EBT, etc.).

    Throwing money at this problem will not solve the farmers’ issues with these tariffs, however it will keep them happy for a short period.
