Crisis Averted!

In my last blog titled Coffee Without Milk? I discussed the possibility of milk prices reaching outrageous new highs ($8). Fortunately for us latte lovers, the fiscal cliff bill that Congress passed yesterday includes a measure to prevent dairy prices from skyrocketing. Until September, a number of agricultural subsidies from the 2008 Farm Bill will be extended, dairy included. So you can open your eyes now and a take a sip of that cappuccino, it certainly won’t be your last!

that is all we need ... continuation of Agricultural Subsidies. We should let the free market rule ... we don't need those subsidies and they end up costing us more because of increased tax revenues needed to pay for them.
