Farmers not bursting with fed. money

You should be ashamed to print such a biased “cartoon” of the Farm Bill as published Monday.

Do you have any idea where the money actually goes?

The food stamps, aid to dependent children and federally funded housing accounts for 72 percent, farm and commodity programs 15 percent, all other programs 6 percent and miscellaneous 1 percent.

It is time citizens realize farmers are not the group that should be shown as bursting at the seams with federal money.
