The USDA spent 300-thousand dollars on a search for a new location; the USDA is spending money on retention and re-location benefits; the state of Mo is spending money on incentives; KC is spending money on incentives..... please tell me again how this is beneficial for taxpayers?

It isn't Hyper - but it does serve to weaken or even destroy the Department, which is all part the "deregulation" (AKA getting rid of protections for the consumer) that the GOP has promised to Big Ag Corporations for years.
