Meet the Republicans Who Gobbled Millions in Farm Subsidies and Voted To Slash Food Stamps (VIDEO)

“Between 1995 and 2011 US tax payers gave away 6.2 million dollars in farm subsidies just to members of Congress or their immediate families. Farm subsidy payments are released yearly to recipients who claim them and are issued  regardless of financial or economic need. A Senate Bill  from 2012 which attempted to make changes to the way the farm subsidies are paid out, was shot down by the same Congressional representatives who continuously demand requirements like drug testing, income documentation, work or training, time limits and many other harsh guidelines for impoverished families who dare ask for help with food.”
