    how many other government subsidized benefits these farmers get. From crop insurance to loan guarantees to export subsidies to technical assistance to disaster payments to commodity price supports to...

    Of course we should also mention that the H2A visa program essentially subsidizes wages because employers don't have to pay SSI and Medicare payroll taxes.

    Then it would be interesting to see how much of that money went to corporate interests.
