Every farmer I know around here, and in the Texas panhandle draw farm SUBSIDIES.
Many have also doubled down by signing their wife up, and in some cases one or more of their school age children.
I've been in a farming family my entire 69 years.
Some 20 million dollars a year in subsidies go to those raising corn, wheat, soybeans, and rice.
That 39% your talking about are the richest farmers getting the most of the subsidies.
EWG FARM SUBSIDY DATABASE is a very enlightening data base showing the state by state number of farmers receiving the subsidies. Its enormous, and the bigger farmers income because of the government subsidies is estimated to be 30 times that of a normal middle class citizen.
