Most of the checking I did, suggests that corporate and Agriculture wefare is in the hundreds of billions of dollars. How come NO one of the politicians are willing to eliminate or restructure this to reduce the budget.

I should have said that no republicans will touch this. Upon further research, it seems the gov gives 1 billion dollars to big oil and gas and 200 million to big tobacco. If there are any people out there that have some corporate or Ag well fare info, please post so we have a better understanding of the total amount of tax payer dollars that are being wasted. Multinational companies and corporate farms should not receive a dime from us. Help the small farmer? of course! But even Senator Grassley from Iowa received money from the government for his family farm. Maybe Senator Sanders has some better input into this.
