    Tracking farm subsidies

    Cool website.

    https://farm.ewg.org/index.php

    Click on a state, then mouse over a county to see total farm subsidies from 1995 to present.

    In my county in Ohio it was 45 million. That's a lot of money considering it's only 86,000 people and 1200 farms.

    Average per farm receiving payments is $4283.

    In Brown County, SD, the average is $25,000 per farm.

    I thought liberals were supposed to be the big drag on government money?

    I have properties in two quite disparate counties. One is the wine capital of the world with a pretty high standard of living, receives about $4700 per farm and voted for Hillary.

    The other county is mixed ag, mainly fruit, nuts and rice, lots of petty crime, many many more homeless, receives about 27000 per farm and voted about 70% for Trump. Both are within a two hour drive of each other.

    So those farms getting 27,000 in subsidies to keep their prices way, way below market value are voting for the guy who says other countries are taking advantage of US farmers by being protectionist?

    It's always funny when evil government handouts and freebies suddenly become acceptable.

    Not bad for one county. Make sure you remind your neighbors that, they didn't build that.

    I wonder how many people who object to Big Daddy Fed handing out assistance were recipients of assistance?
