Members of Congress benefit from farm subsidies

The Panama City News Herald tallied farm subsidy data for Florida and examined the subsidies paid to U.S. Rep. Allen Boyd and other Congressional leaders with ties to agriculture.  Matt Dixon reported that in  "Boyd's first 10 years in Congress, Boyd Family Farms has received $1.2 million in subsidy payments, ranking it 12th out of more than 5,300 farms in his district that received subsidy money over that period."
