How did the US government begin the support of certain foods over other items? New book FYI!

You must find this book, new at you local library, titled - "Problems of
Plenty, the American Farmer in the Twentieth Century" by R. Douglas Hurt.

It is 173 pages of very interesting history of the federal government and
the farmers groups in every section of the nation.  These groups were the
controllers of Congress prior to the present Oil and Industry Corporations
when the one man one vote redistricting hadn't been demanded.  The
population shift created a time when the votes of the large areas of the
nation that were rural, no longer had the population numbers but did have
the greater
number of representatives and senators and it goes back to when Lott and
Thurmond began their power trip.

A must read to understand how we got to where we are with the food supplies.
