Tag: Democratic Party Hypocricy In Action
By Corinthian Scales, Section News
Ya, I'm talking about Democrats.
Stabenow talked to farm owner Len Gustafson about how, with the help of funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Gustafson's Farm has become a huge success. The owners say that over the past five years, they've managed to grow their farm from about 10 cows to nearly 200 cows, and they now produce 80,000 pounds of beef a year.
Hmmm, that's roughly growing the herd by two head per month. Nothing really all that amazing about that, but, congrats to Mr. Gustafson all the same.
Government funding covered 60 percent of an $80,000 project to improve their beef operation with fencing and a new water system. Len says the more cows drink, the more they eat, and heavier cows make better meat.
Holy crap! We taxpayers are subsidizing over half of this private businesses improvements? Ahhh, so there's why Sen. Stabenow, Chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee is in the U.P. It's a campaign photo-op.
Or is it?

November 17, 2004, Senator Debbie Stabenow said it was "immoral" and "fiscally irresponsible" to raise the debt limit.
So, Sen. Stabenow, please explain this vote. Remember, 2004, while still wrong, it was chump-change in comparison to what's happening with Stabenows' and Obamas' demagoguery of their spending today.
