Members of Congress Collect At Least $9.5 Million in Farm Subsidies | EWG
Members of Congress collected at least $9.5 million in farm subsidies between 1995 and 2014, according to new data from EWG’s Farm Subsidy Database – including more than $1.1 million in subsidies over the last five years.
The 36 legislators and their spouses received millions in traditional farm subsidies since 1995. It’s likely that many also received crop insurance subsidies – but those are hidden from the public.
Most are Republicans, and this is still going on.
