It has the side effect (unintended consequence) of exposing the outrageous welfare given to the farmers in Colorado. Lets invite all of Hollyweird and have some good old fashioned class warfare. The family farm is becoming a myth of history anyway.
This might be a good thing. Totally ignoring the fact that 95% of what government does is reward special interests at the expense of the rest of the citizenry, and looking solely at HOW the money is looted. I think that tax rates should be uniform. However, failing that I think it doesn't make any difference WHO you are. If you qualify legally for the break based on land usage, then you should be able to get it regardless of your income.
Apparently some of the posters on this thread are in favor of means testing.
Over 90% of our food comes from family farms.
The economics of it have changed. It is complicated by the "government programs" and by the influence of Global Ag but some still survive in spite of everything.
My family has farmed in Haskell County TX since they were burned out of AL during Reconstruction. It has never been easy. My ancestors were here before a town, before the railroad and before civilization. Some of the land that my father and uncle farm has been farmed by our family for over 110 years.
Several of the local families came about the same time, running away from the consequences of a terribly corrupt central government. They voted with their feet and moved past the edge of comfort and civilization.
There are many similarities today with what drove them here. (I moved away for over 25 years, first in my family, but moved back about 15 years ago)
