Deep inside we're all subsidy serfs...

It seems the competition from Chinese produce growers has tempted the US industry to turn to the Dark Side.
But now, in the face of tough new competition primarily from China, even these proud groups are buckling. Produce farmers, their hands newly outstretched, have joined forces for the first time, forming a lobby group intended to pressure politicians over the farm bill to be debated in Congress in January.
Sadly, it may not save them. But by using the power of California in Congress, they may just save us older recipients by diluting our payments.

Also, as the dollar continues to drop versus the yuan, what excuse will we use?
