It's time to become a farmer.

As you may know, the crop prices are the highest in decades. Combine that with long standing subsidies and it's clear that being a large farmer is a good thing.

But wait, there is more! It's an election next year and the legislators of the banana republic are busy doling out cash. In an act of charity, our benevolent Senate is ready to inject some of the taxpayers' money into the farms. Fortunately, there is a limit - if the farmer's income is more than 2.5 million dollars then s/he is not eligible for a subsidy. it is so bad that the President, who himself has a very lax attitude towards the taxpayer money, calls the bill 'expensive'.
