To the editor,

Because of President 45's tariffs on China, our government must now bail out farmers. Businesses and citizens pay the price for the retaliatory fallout.

There was the federal bailout of huge corporations with trillions of dollars to prevent their bankruptcy and economic collapse (2008). Preserving multi-million dollar bonuses for executives in those same failing corporations was icing on the cake.

Republican leaders complained loudly about failure of the federal government to take immediate action with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill/disaster.

Corporate Welfare?

And yet, the GOP wants to stop "government interference" in the private sector, squawking about socialism...
