Just another example of what happens when government meddles in things it should not. Controlling prices indirectly, by controlling supply. In fact charging producers a type of surcharge for producing too much milk. We all know demand will not decrease. So what does basic economics tell us what prices will do? Rise! Just another hidden tax imposed by the federal government. Not a tax in the legal definition, but effectively an extra cost passed onto the American consumer because of a federal government enacted policy. Ask a politician if he believes in controlling prices, he will tell you flat out no. Then ask him if he agrees with this. Just like the Federal Reserve once said they absolutely disagree with price fixing, but it is okay for the board of unelected officials at the Federal Reserve to set interest rates upon which all financial institutions, the government, and American citizens borrow money.
