Lawmakers are seeking to provide stimulus to Dairy Farmers by.... reducing and controlling the number of dairy cows, so the supply is diminished and you and I forced to pay more. Yay!
That's what stimulus means now. You and I forced to pay more as our representatives dole out pork to "favored groups" to regulate competition with you and I paying for it. Assuming you drink dairy products.
So I guess the Public Lands Omnibus Bill sliding through Congress like a 4 day old tex mex enchilada is the natural gas stimulus plan! By saying we CAN'T drill US natural gas, that will make the price of gas go up, right?
Well, probably not, because I guar-on-tee that the milk deal restricts imported milk. Not so with not drilling our own gas. No import restrictions on that. In fact, effectively subsidized since they are exempt US severance taxes. It justs puts US oil and gas producers out of business and stimulates foreign natural gas producers...
Hope its worth it.
