Do What Now?

Sometimes you can't help but laugh:

As negotiations on a farm bill have stumbled, Bush has asked the House and Senate to extend the law for a year or longer. He says the new legislation is too expensive and would not do enough to cut subsidy payments to wealthy farmers in a time of record crop prices.

So, let me get this straight. Bush doesn't like the legislation because it subsidizes wealthy members of a large, profitable industry in a time of record prices for the products of said industry.

It seems that same logic could apply to another industry in those exact terms. Care to cut those subsidies, Mr. Bush? Didn't think so.
