Farm Subsidies hark back to the era just after the war when there were severe food shortages.  We no longer live in that world and farm subsidies are no longer needed.

They also cost Billions each year that could be saved. 

Why is this idea important?

Farm subsidies pay farmers, per acre, to not grow crops deemed to be in surplus.  This is a distortion of free market principles.  It also prevents third world farmers from working their way out opf poverty.
