    • Yeah, Christine Todd Whitman, former Republican governor and quitter as well as the EPA head who lied for the Bush administration saying the air at ground zero was fine, has one of those "farm assessments" on her New Jersey property. While a person in the small downtown area near Whitman's country estate pays $8000 on a acre and a half, Whitman's farm welfare assement on 150 acres is somewhere around $500. Whitmans entire family history is REPUBLICAN and her husband is a private equity investor on Wall Street. Whitman claims her farm raises "firewood". Meanwhile, the roads she lives on are dirt and require excessive maintainence from the local municipality. All of the wealthy in her community live on these dirt roads so they can ride their ever #$%$ horses on them. She and almost everyone who lives in this sequester area of this town have attended private schools away from the "poor" masses. This is who the Republican party is. Wealthy, out of touch with the masses, and in control of what happens to the masses. AND, this is why they've lost elections over and over, the MASSES are now taking back our country. The Tea Bags are a mere schill front for these corporate losers, they do not represent nor have they acted on behalf of WE THE PEOPLE. Is it any wonder why people keep saying PAY YOUR SHARE. Food stamps help people eat, FARM WELFARE helps the rich GET OVER.

    • Quoting from an article

      ""◾Farm subsidies are intended to alleviate farmer poverty, but the majority of subsidies go to commercial farms with average incomes of $200,000 and net worths of nearly $2 million.

      ◾Farm subsidies are intended to raise farmer incomes by remedying low crop prices. Instead, they promote overproduction and therefore lower prices further.

      ◾Farm subsidies are intended to help struggling family farmers. Instead, they harm them by excluding them from most subsidies, financing the consolidation of family farms, and raising land values to levels that prevent young people from entering farming.

      ◾Farm subsidies are intended to be consumer-friendly and taxpayer-friendly. Instead, they cost Americans billions each year in higher taxes and higher food costs.

      Lawmakers would be hard-pressed to enact a set of policies that are more destructive to farmers, taxpayers, and consumers than the current farm policies. For these and other reasons, organizations representing taxpayers, consumers, environmentalists, international trade, Third World countries, and even farmers themselves have united around the shared conclusion that the current farm subsidy system is failing and in dire need of reform during this year's reauthorization."
