No one wants to pay taxes, give away money or pay for the lazy, but if we cut welfare to the wealthy, we could feed the poor and have money left over. The Agriculture Bill funds food stamps and food banks, but also pays agricultural subsidies that flow primarily to the wealthy, without regard to need or profitability. How much? Billions of your tax dollars wasted, while the government can't find the millions of dollars it would take to feed children and working poor, most of whom are rural families.

Worse, it subsidizes corporate farms, competing with non-subsidized subsistence farmers in third world countries. So much for Free Markets. If this sounds familiar, see the video on Corporate Welfare, below.
