(Worthy News) - The U.S. Department of Agriculture said on Thursday that farmers will receive $14.5 billion in direct payments as part of a $16 billion aid package designed to offset the financial pain from trade disputes with China and other nations.

Farmers will receive the first direct payment in July or August, with subsequent payments planned for late fall and early 2020, the USDA said. The payments will be based on the counties in which farmers live, not by crop, according to the agency. [ Source: Reuters (Read More...) ]

  1. Where is 14 or 16 billion going to come from? After the how many billions are to be spent on the southern border wall? I thought half the argument against Obama was the run away national debt. It is still running away. Where are the Republicans crying out about national debt and no solutions for it?
