Out of Arkansas and 1995 to 2000. Five years of slicks regime. I'm not saying it smells but the potential is sure there!

I guess you might say there are "some kickbacks" to being President from 96-2000, IMHO.

There are ENORMOUS subsidy totals for farms in EVERY state...not just Arkansas.

This has nothing in particular to do with Clinton, and everything to do with our comically stupid subsidy programs for agriculture.

And what do you see when you drive through Iowa, nothing but farms, no big cities, just farms. We have dungheap harkin for a senator, kisses up to clinton but does NOT bring home the bacon for Iowa. No Iowa Farms listed above.

I don't claim to be anything near an expert on the farm subsidy plan, but this is how I understand it. The government wants the farmers to produce so much that the prices stay low and fairly constant. However that doesn't make for a very profitable business. So they pay the farmers subsidies,welfare,whatever you want to call it so they continue to farm. As with any large govt. program there are rampant abuses and theft,that find their way in...

You have part of the picture. Now, go one step farther, who stands to benefit with prices lower? Why, of course, the grain companies that buy the grain from the farmer. It is no accident that the largest privately owned business in the United States is a grain firm. Cargill takes the dubious distinction.

It is no coincidence that most of the farm programs cover exportable grains and cotton. Most of the problems in agriculture are caused by the monoplies that set the prices. If the monoplies were broken up the market would work.

OPEC controls oil prices through their cartel. World grain prices are set by the US grain cartel.

Actually, the SOB (Dungheap) does bring home the bacon for the right people, and I've seen it. A relative of mine married into a family who - for years - has bent over backward for Ol' Dung, and they have been handsomely rewarded: their "farm" is one of the top gov't $$$ recipients in Iowa, and there have been nice gov't jobs for some of the kids. I put "farm" in quotes, because it isn't a farm, it's a fricking BIG BUSINESS.

Everyone wants to know why we dumb-ass Iowans keep returning Dungheap to DC, and I'll gladly tell them why:

a: he distributes enough pork to keep the right wheels greased, including so-called Republican ones

b: he isn't afraid to run a negative campaign, and always has willing local press assuring us that his campaign isn't negative

c: the Iowa GOP falls all over itself to field inadequate candidates every damned time they can, and if they can't find anyone who is traditionally inept enough, they'll dig up the state's current RINO poster child.

Other than that, the guy is beatable... and I've got some Iowa oceanfront property to sell. Barring some sort of miracle, the creep will end up being the Strom Thurmond of the 'rat side. Don't kid yourself- the Dung Man delivers for the people who count.

To All,

Who makes the decision as to who gets how much? How many states has this kind of subsidies?

From EWG web site......

Who Gets Subsidies?

Only farmers who grow one of the eight "program" crops are eligible for farm subsidy checks. (See a state listing of how many farms get subsidies.) Even then they are eligible only if their land has been enrolled in the program to establish an official production history.

All farmers are eligible for conservation program payments, but funds are usually so limited that tens of thousands of applicants are turned away.

Disaster payment eligibility varies from year to year, depending on the geography of weather-related losses and congressional action to provide ad hoc disaster aid for those losses. Crop insurance transactions are not included in this database.

The EWG database includes only one form of agricultural aid--direct payments to farmers. It does not include income transfers that occur from consumers to farm operations or agribusiness as a result of programs that raise commodity prices through various ways, including programs for sugar, peanuts, dairy and tobacco.
