This is just stupid beyond all that's reasonable. Milk prices should be higher?!! You're kidding....and WHY should they be higher? Maybe because the government is subsidizing corn ethanol, which raises the price of corn to astronomical levels, so as to help out the dirt farmers. Which, also raises the price of land in the midwest, which subsequently raises the price of housing. So, they spend money to make corn more expensive, THEN, have to spend more money to subsidize other area's of the economy so that things don't get too expensive, thus creating an imbalance in the monetary system, making the money worth less, and then EVERYTHING costs more. Gubment...helping the crap outta ya...whether you like it or not.
