Find Out Who Is Getting Federal Farm Subsidies, And How Much
This weekend the Wisconsin State Journal editorial page tackled the continuing sham of federal farm subsidies. As currently constructed these subsidies are a joke. As the paper noted when you live on the shores of Lake Monona in a very sweet home it seems illogical that a farm subsidy would be landing in your mail box. That it can–and does–underscores what many have known for years.
There needs to be a major overhauling of this boondoggle that drains taxpayer dollars into the hands of those who know how to farm the government.
After all, you pay for it.
It is easy.
Click on the state you wish to know about (for instance here is Wisconsin), and then click the county within that state. Or you can check out a particular congressional district.
Then contact your member of Congress and encourage them to write a farm bill that does not contain more of this irrational farming of the government.
