What idiot came up with this?


Here is my current scenario. I live in a rural area. I own a few acres in pasture land and have a couple of horses on it. I make no money from the land. It costs me money each day when I feed my horses. Now, my land is no longer considered agricultural and my taxes are going to raise by a large amount.

Now, here is another scenario. I live in a rural area. I own a few acres in pasture land. I can allow it to grow up into weeds and accept a welfare check from the government to do this, which they refer to as a farm subsidy, and my property taxes won't raise. Does this make any sense to anyone? Who was the idiot that came up with this and who are the idiots that passed it into law?
