    This just shows that the Senate knows nothing about economics and/or human behavior in an economy. Milk prices would not double, may rise some but never double, the dairymen would be selling their cows to the slaughter houses. The farm bill just represents a massive give away subsidy to an industry to buy votes and keep corporate profits up at taxpayer expense.
