Will Brazilian Cotton Farmers be pleased with the House’s farm bill? We’ll see.

“It’s absurd that U.S. taxpayers have been on the hook for millions to Brazil cotton farmers for years because of Congress’ unwillingness to reform our cotton subsidy programs,” said Rep. Flake. “Eliminating this penalty funding will put much-needed pressure on Congress to actually rein in our cotton subsidies so they’re WTO-compliant.”
