I lived in Georgia for nearly 30 years. The South would love to rise up on taxpayer funded bailouts. South Georgia farmers are no exception and they love to "vote the ticket"; that is, just go down the voting ballot and anyone who is a Democrat gets their vote. Simple isn't it? No thought to what is right for the country. The give-away for taxpayer dollars continues unabated.
Here is a sample of what just was passed in the Omnibus PORK BILL by Congress Critters and Trump. Section 731 of the bill’s Division A tweaks the Department of Agriculture’s Tree Assistance program to make sure that producers of pecans can get reimbursed for disaster losses in 2017 even if they didn’t lose 15 percent of their trees, the usual standard under the program. The top pecan-producing states are Texas and Georgia, which got hit last year by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma; House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway is from Texas, and Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue is from Georgia.
