Farm Bill Huge Spending Increases

The farm bills currently working their way through the House and Senate are both projected to cost nearly $1 trillion, far more than the last farm bill passed by Congress in 2008, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Note: The actual costs of the new farm bill will likely be much higher, just as the actual costs were with the 2008 farm bill.
