Record Food Prices and Record Farm Profits, Why Record Farm Subsidies?

Hosted by

Food prices are setting records and so are the profits of farmers, so why is Congress at work on a farm bill with more subsidies than ever before? Even Iowa Senator Tom Harkin calls it "free money."  Will the rich be getting richer at the expense of the environment, small farmers and American consumers? Also, the Supreme Court upholds Indiana Voter ID Law, and Jeremiah Wright at the National Press Club today: on patriotism, Louis Farrakhan and Barack Obama.
