If the farmers costs rise, won't the price of produce rise with it?
Lots of North Dakota and Minnesota farmers would lose federal subsidies under President Barack Obama’s budget released last week. Commercial farms in North Dakota that would lose their direct payments under Obama’s plan would be closer to 20 percent.
"A farmer could see a drop in farm income and still see a cut in their safety net support," he said.
Economists said the cut in subsidies would fall hardest on mid-size farms in years that income is squeezed by rising production costs or falling commodity prices.

It's Obama's carbon tax plan that is going to put just about every industry under...and/or increase costs dramatically! Us "cons" are for a free market...but not with government setting the rules and pulling our strings!
So, anyone like Al Gore or Nancy Pelosi and husband who run or are heavily invested in businesses related to saving/protecting the environment and the management of "carbon footprints" will make out like bandits (kind of fitting, huh?!)...and libs thought Halliburton was the sole "axis of evil" in the world!
