    Why does the department of agriculture make laws that hurt the abilities of farmers?

    This would be a more fruitful question if you were to be a little more specific about what you have in mind.

    Unfortunately, the Dep of Ag is a panel of politicians, not farmers.  I'm not saying this as a put-down, but a reality.  I know that they do hire consultants, and there are men and women who earnestly want to enact laws that contribute to the greater good... but the fact is that Agriculture is such a broad spectrum industry, that they often end up putting bills through that do the exact opposite of their intention, because they operate under wrong assumptions.  Farmers and Agricultural professionals who actively fight for their rights and interests have often turned this around, and I applaud them for it.  There are simply not enough of you.

    You have asked a question that has bothered me for years. Conditionally, there is too much red tape, and they must make ends meet while supporting a wide spectrum of specific needs.

    Like most other issues, politicians make laws about stuff they don't understand.  If it looks good on paper, they think it will work.  Unfortunately, not everything is always practical.  Laws would make a lot more sense if the political field was made up of a wide variety of people instead of just lawyers and business men.

    you know...i would like to try to formulate an educated and logical answer, but then i realize it's a government ran organization. a majority of laws are put in act via lobbyist influence.

    Joelipoo makes a good point of a major problem with our politics.  Friends pull favors to put people in positions of power in our government.  We have officials heading up all different types of departments who never worked in the fields they are in charge of.  When any of us apply for a job, we are expected to have some sort of training, or experience.  It would be nice if our government representatives where expected to hold the same standards. I don’t think any government figure should be able to be appointed without the public voting for them. How do we make our government work for us again?
