Quotes-start.png "Farms have one of the lowest failure rates of any industry and farm incomes are setting records. The average farm household earns $81,420 and has a net worth of $838,875. And yet the Senate passed a $286 billion five-year farm bill expanding subsidies for growers. Never mind the adverse effect of government subsidies on the cost of food." Quotes-end.png
