This is all well and good yet that proverbial trillion dollars is going to come out of someone's pockets – or, rather, stop going into someone's pockets – and they are going to have something to say about that.  Industry lobbyists (agribusiness, insurance, etc.) are employed to make sure that elected representatives are duly influenced (campaign contributions, etc.) to keep the subsidies and tax breaks/credits coming.  Yes, I am more than a little cynical.  This is a topic I have studied for a while now.  On the same token, I do believe that we citizens can unite to fight for what is right — just be aware of what it is that we are up against here.
