WSJ & Reuters blast Yingluck’s farm subsidy as vote buying & accepts US Dems farm bill vote buying

Unlike Thailand, where PM Yingluck farm subsidy was criticized for buying votes, by most global press, such as USA’s Wall Street Journal & Bloomberg, and Reuters, they are silence now, on the USA Democrat Party is now relying on a “Farm Bill” to remain the majority in 2014, and the move is seen as normal in Democracy. Where is WSJ, Reuters and Bloomberg, that have treated Yingluck’s farm subsidy as evil incarnated? The Hill reports: “The quest to keep their Senate majority became more complicated Monday with the death of Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.). New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is expected to appoint a Republican, which meansDemocrats will likely have to battle a GOP incumbent to regain the seat. Agriculture is a major industry in Montana, South Dakota, Arkansas and North Carolina, four states that are huge GOP targets next year. Montana and South Dakota are open seats following the announced retirements of Sens. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and Tim Johnson (D-S.D.). Meanwhile, Sens. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) are two of the chamber’s most vulnerable incumbents. Other rural states where Democrats face competitive races are Alaska, Louisiana, New Hampshire and West Virginia. Pryor and Hagan have listed the farm bill among their highest priorities and have urged colleagues to act on it. Passing a bipartisan farm bill will give Democrats in those states a strong argument to make on the campaign trail.” (Source)
