I'm quoted as part of a long Politico feature on food safety and other key food-policy issues that ran today. I take on wasteful and wrongheaded farm subsidies.
"Thanks to Congress and the farm bill, the USDA pays farmers to produce all of the leading sources of calories in the American diet,” said Baylen Linnekin. "If we're eating too many calories, we have lawmakers to thank for this."
The piece contains a number of poll responses, to which I also contributed.
