The farm bill is good, not bad. The farm bill is passed every 5 years or so, and the government make many amendments to it so it is up to date. The farm bill protects farmers, and gives them assistance if they need it. Without the farm bill, agriculture prices would shoot through the room.
The Farm Bill keeps food prices low. However, there are fundamental flaws with the legislation. Republicans don't like the food stamp program associated with the bill. Farms should be like big oil--Americans need to question why subsidies should go to farmers in a free market system. I understand farm bills produce quotas and regulations for farmers to follow, but giving them billions in taxpayer dollars may be a bit much in some cases.
