Learn more about Farm Subsidies
A farm subsidy is a form of financial aid paid to farmers by the government. The purpose of the aid can be to supplement their income or influence the cost and supply of agricultural products. The U.S. government pays farmers more than $20 Billion a year in farm subsidies. Proponents argue that the subsides are necessary since net farm income has decline by 32% between 2014 and 2015. Opponents argue that the farmers should fend for themselves and point out that 2,300 farmers who do not grow crops receive annual subsidies. See recent farm subsidy news

Yes, but only farmers that can give proof of inability to make a living wage based on family size and geographical cost of living. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Evanston, IL
Most subsidies benefit large commercial producers of GMO & GE crops. No more incentives or write-offs for GMO/GE crops, herbicides, pesticides, etc. No more having former officials of Monsanto, Dow, ADM, Cargill, etc. being appointed to run the FDA... 5 years ago from a Republican in Hickory Hills, IL
Yes, but find better ways to utilize excess crops/food as opposed to automatically making them commodities (i.e. giving more food to the homeless, the poor, children, nursing homes, etc.). 5 years ago from a Socialist in Chicago, IL
