The article cites the statement by Mike Johanns who says U.S. consumers are getting a bargain in farm programs--a case he'll try to make as he begins to travel the country as the nation's 28th secretary of agriculture. Speaking at his first new conference since being sworn in as secretary Johanns said his years as an attorney and politician in Nebraska after growing up on an Iowa dairy farm have given him the opportunity to see things from the consumers' point of view.
