Rick Crawford: Welfare for millionaires

Posted By on Tue, Mar 15, 2011 at 3:37 PM

It's hardly surprising, but it's another good example of a tall-talking Republican who's all about cutting government unless it's his pet interest.

The BHD of the day today is U.S. Rep. Rick Crawford. Whatever else happens, he wants to preserve farm subsidies. Some of those gentlemen welfare farmers in Crawford's district like Republicans Jim Lindsey and Stanley Reed are down to the last millions. They should not suffer.
