Billions and billions of dollars are being spent on corn subsidies. Why? Take a good look at what’s on the shelf of your local grocery store, products that are made from corn.
Do we really need to subsidize the production of all these processed foods that are produced from corn? The beneficiaries of all these subsidies are large corporations who profit from lower corn prices.
And look at just one of the effects these subsidies have on farmers outside the U.S.A. http://bit.ly/rU9i3R
Over $80 billion in corn subsidies were provided by the U.S. government between 1995 and 2010. http://bit.ly/ilvkTY
