Which is not all. Ranch subsidies over the last 10 years have also distributed to:

  • Lot of money 500 businesses, such as John Hancock life insurance policies ($2,849,799); Overseas report ($1,183,893); Westvaco ($534,210); and ChevronTexaco ($446,914).
  • Pop idol “hobby farm owners” including David Rockefeller ($553,782); Ted Turner ($206,948); and Scottie Pippen ($210,520).
  • Members of Congress, exactly who choose on ranch subsidies, like for example Senator Charles Grassley (R- IA, $225,041); Senator Gordon Grey (R-OR, $45,400, plus a 25 percent property in three agencies that obtained $2,114,622); and typical John Salazar (D-CO, $161,084).[26]

As Chuck Hassebrook from the Center for remote issues keeps agreed, “There is no [payment] limitations correct.”[28]
