From the Washington Post:

The R Street Institute, a nonprofit government-watchdog group and free-market think-tank, criticized the Senate bill for directing much of the savings from ending direct payments toward expanding subsidies on other areas.

“Any new farm bill should ensure that Americans aren’t subsidizing the rich, encouraging risky behavior and harming the environment with their tax dollars,” said Andrew Moylan, a senior fellow for the group. “This [Senate] draft fails that test.”
