CFC is a current version of an old "New Deal" horror: the government's destruction of livestock and other agricultural products to keep food prices high during the Great Depression.
North observes that Congress, in approving measures like this, has lost touch with reality:
There is no boondoggle too nutty for Congress to reject our of hand. The fiscal deficit is an estimated $1.8 trillion. Instead of watching every spending bill like hawks, Congress figures "What's another $2 billion?" The magnitude of the deficits today is so great that there is now no resistance to further spending, all funded by government debt.
This is hit and run of the poor. It is also hit-and-run either for future taxpayers or future investors in Federal debt, who will be stiffed by mass inflation. Then the rest of us will lose.
There is no stopping Congress today. The last flickering traces of fiscal sanity ended in the election of 2004.
