No Sympathy 07/20/2012 @ 9:52am No sympathy whatsoever. These greedy rich farmers were glad to accept record subsidies and handouts during the last decade when they were profitable, so they should be just fine now. Where I live all the rich farmers have brand new 70K trucks every year so must not be too bad. Moreover, I have heard many of them bragging about how they may actually make more money off crop insurance (which is mostly subsidized by the government) than they would from the normal market. These rich farmers sound more ridiculous every year and the public is waking up to the massive taxpayer fraud.
