Welfare is welfare. The farm program is welfare for the rich. Half of he food stamp program is for the lazy.

Most of the "farm aid" goes to rich city people & agribusiness who do little actual farming.

The average farmer gets squat.

Not that this is a surprise, or anything new.

That's why most ACTUAL farmers support cutting off farm welfare.

Please continue to have Nancy Pelosi picture/voice on all news stories. She is so alienating that there is an automatic visceral response whenever she is see or heard.

Very negative reaction by public.
