Half of USDA Farm Subsidy Dollars Go to Just 4% of Farms
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) does not spread the wealth when it comes to farm subsidies. In fact, from the mid-1990s to the middle of this decade, just over half of all subsidies were distributed to a mere 4% of all recipients, according to USDA data compiled by the Environmental Working Group. The amount given to this small crop of farmers was almost $90 billion.
