    The Tea Party swept into the 112th Congress with promises of cutting government spending. But according to a report out today, at least five lawmakers with Tea Party connections have been longtime recipients of federal agricultural subsidies.

    While the self-described Tea Party patriot lists his occupation as “farmer” and “gospel singer” in the Congressional Directory, he doesn’t mention that his family has received more than $3 million in farm subsidies from 1995 to 2009, according to the Environmental Working Group.

    In 2009 alone, government farm subsidies totaled more than $16 billion. They totaled almost a quarter of a trillion dollars over the last 15 years.

    Just five crops account for 90 percent of all farm subsidies: cotton, corn, rice, wheat, and soybeans.

    ABC News: Stephen Fincher guilty of Tea Party hypocrisy?

    Well, at least you haven't started an "I'm leaving" thread yet....You just go away.

    Could you be so kind as to indulge us once again?

    What is the point of this thread? Is rdean actually capable of making a thread with a point, or do they all end up truncated?
