if GMOs really lower the cost of food...

why do we need this Farm Bill that subsidies the farms that use the stuff? Shouldn't their cost be lower and they should be able to make a profit on their own without government (our) money?
Well it doesn't cost less in the long run. They need to use more and more pesticides and chemicals, more running machinery over the fields (more fuel and compaction) And it destroyes the land of humus (valuable organic matter) which makes it even more costly to grow food. Plus we now have huge health issues.
