Behold the "free market" in action

"Consumers are faced with impossibly high prices charged for dairy products by the mega-processors — Nestle, Kraft, Suiza/Dean, Unilever, and others, all the while farmers, almost without exception, are hit with below-cost-of-production payment for their milk output. There is outstanding inaction by governments."

It seems that the Obama administration's guiding principle is the conservative dictum "better dead than Red" (the American System, designed to facilitate production, is deliberately confused with socialism to provide a pretext for not implementing it).
