Why Taxpayers Pay For Farmers’ Insurance

Why Taxpayers Pay For Farmers’ Insurance    (listen to the NPR episode)
“In spite of the drought, many U.S. farmers will do just fine this year. They are, after all, covered by crop insurance — a program that costs U.S. taxpayers $7 billion a year. On today’s show, we travel to Fairbury, Illinois. We meet three generations of farmers who tell us that, even without government-subsidized crop insurance, their farms would survive the drought.”
NPR, August 14, 2012
