Wouldn't it be better to phase them out gradually?

If you are going to get rid of them, yes.

I'd actually prefer getting rid of these subsidies over time also. I don't support the idea of subsidies but we can't just end the programs in just one year. If my colleagues are open to the idea, I'd introduce an amendment phasing out the farm subsidies.

That would be great Phil.
