Meanwhile, as no one here seems to care about infected chicken - gambling that one of the 17 states isn't yours) - then maybe you don't care about beef either. Over the week-end when skeptics were busy looking out their windows and believing that the weather outside their window meant that everything was right with the world - several weather events were occurring.
But there was a Weather even in South Dakota - a meager blizzard that was one of those Once in a Century Event. But who cares - well, if you like BEEF - maybe you? Upwards of 60,000 heads of beef died due to this event. Aid to the Ranchers - sorry, the Department of AG was furloughed and the Farm Bill that provides subsidies to assist these ranchers - Sorry, tht was the GOP House farm bill that they couldn't pass even in their own caucus. Emergency Relief - sorry they are also furloughed.
I wonder if this is a managed catastrophe that Sen. Coburn was advocating? When the cost of beef spikes at your local grocery store, you might remember this event instead of kneejerking a blame the ACA.
