Last week, while everyone was enraptured by the trio of Obama administration scandals, Congress was hard at work fleecing American taxpayers.
This time, they’re doing it with a multi-billion dollar bill to subsidize farmers. The bill is a maze of agribusiness subsidies, welfare payments and “green” crony capitalism spending. Programs in the farm bill include: income support for farmers, price controls on select crops, government guaranteed loans and special subsidized crop insurance for farmers.
The problem is not agriculture per se. It’s that once the money flows, it becomes impossible to turn off the gushing payment spigot to demanding recipients.
You see, the current farm payment programs all got started in the 1930s. During the Great Depression, times were tough… but today’s farming is a whole other thing, mostly controlled by large, successful agribusiness. Present-day farms are bringing in record-high incomes. Technology has done away with numerous risks that used to bedevil agriculture.
Nowadays, the never-ending giveaway of billions of dollars to agribusiness is a needless expense that inevitably falls to taxpayers.
Big Agriculture is a Big Business
When you listen to congressmen talk about the farm bill, you might think the bill helps small, family farms. But in actuality, the victors are giant agribusiness.
About 75% of big farms collect subsidies compared to only 24% of the smaller, family farms. According to the government’s own data, farms with gross sales of $1 million or more received 23% of all commodity-related cash, significantly more than the 15% share received by smaller farms in the $100,000 to $249,999 sales range.
Subsidy payments given to large enterprises make it very difficult for small farms to compete and stay in business. The stream of tax dollars into big farms increases demand for farmland, which raises the price of property above the reach of smaller players. If the government wanted to enact effective change, Congress should cut payments to farms raking in over $250,000 per year.

WASHINGTON — Senior Treasury officials were made aware in June 2012 that investigators were looking into complaints from tea party groups that they were being harassed by the Internal Revenue Service, a Treasury inspector general said, disclosing that Obama administration officials knew there was a probe during the heat of the presidential campaign.
J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration, testifying alongside ousted IRS head Steven Miller on Friday, said he had told the department’s general counsel about his investigation on June 4, 2012, and Deputy Treasury Secretary Neal Wolin “shortly thereafter.”
But, George cautioned, those discussions were “not to inform them of the results of the audit. It was to inform them of the fact that we were conducting the audit.”
After the hearing, inspector general spokeswoman Karen Kraushaar said George “informed Department of Treasury officials that we were looking into the IRS’ handling of applications for tax-exempt status, partly due to allegations raised by conservative organizations.”

Kraushaar said the disclosure was part of a routine briefing about the office’s activities.
The Treasury Department issued a statement Friday saying officials first became aware of the actual results of the investigation in March of this year, when they were provided a draft of George’s report, a standard practice.

Urgent: Should Obamacare Be Repealed? Vote Here Now!
In House testimony Friday, former Acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller explained that the IRS mistakes in handling applications for non-profit status from tea party groups were due, in large part, to a flood of applications following the Citizens United decision. Miller said the targeting was a botched attempt to centralize the process to account for the increased workload. There were fewer applications in 2010, when the IRS began targeting conservative groups, than the year before, however.
