Reacts to farm bill

To the editor:

A farm bill has passed through Congress and the president has said he will sign it into law. It will pay 62 percent of the farmer’s crop insurance. The Des Moines Register reports that travelers have lost $2.5 billion this winter due to weather-related issues. Airlines lost $75 million to $150 million just in January. In fairness, travelers and airlines who depend of the weather need equal treatment from our government. Where is socialism when we need it?
