H8r I usually appreciate your "shoot from the hip" style of posting but you are off base on this one. Let's get the facts straight for the record.

MOST farmers do not receive subsidies. Take California for just one example. Only 9% receive them. Texas. Less than 20% and so on.

Also, TOTAL farm subsidies from 1995-2011 was 277 Billion. TOTAL!

Welfare in 2013 alone is $674 BILLION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
