Max Armstrong looks at concerns that bipartisanship may be ending in the writing of the next farm bill. A key area of concern is for the dairy farmer including a dairy margin protection program; which was a flop. Farmers paid in $96 million in premiums and received just $12 million in payments even as the industry suffers from very low prices.
