Why is it Wrong for Farmers to Make Money?
Hoosier AG Today
It is not a new argument; it surfaces every time a Farm Bill comes up for debate in Congress. Farmers get lots of bad press because they take subsidies from the government while making millions from high grain prices which drive up the cost of food. Do a Google news search with the words farm and subsidies, and you will get over 7,000 news stories, none of which are positive toward farmers. In most of these stories, farm subsidies are criticized as being “unnecessary” and farmers are demonized for making a profit off food production.
