Senate to Vote on Farm Subsidies
The Senate begins voting Tuesday on amendments to a new farm bill, which includes billions of dollars in subsidies for farmers and will set the country's agriculture policy for the next five years. Robert Reich, former labor secretary, and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) discuss why the federal government subsidizes farming.
