I wonder if Republicans would be more favorably disposed towards the food-stamp program if it were renamed the "free-market farm price-support voucher system". See, unlike a direct farm subsidy, a voucher system doesn't ask government to pick winners and losers in the farm industry; it lets consumers decide for themselves what they want to buy, so the market picks winners and losers.

Naaah. I must still be asleep.
