The article reports that the demise of U.S. President George W. Bush administration's quest for lower payment limits to help reduce the federal budget deficit may have been somewhat exaggerated. On April 12, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns told Senate Appropriations Committee members he realized some of the administration proposals, such as the reduction in payment limits, were sensitive, and he was willing to work with Congress on other cost savings recommendations. At least two members of Congress and several media organizations took that to mean Johanns was backing away from the administration's insistence that payments be capped at $250,000 per farmer.
