AFP Joins Coalition in Encouraging Super Committee to Cut Wasteful Farm Subsidies
On Tuesday, Americans for Prosperity joined other prominent free-market organizations in urging the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (commonly referred to as the “Super Committee”) to find federal spending cuts by paring back or eliminating billions of dollars in wasteful farm subsidy programs.
Americans for Prosperity’s recent policy paper, “Cut Spending Now: Recommendations for the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction,” shows that the Committee could cut as much as $190 billion in farm subsidies that do little more than distort the free market, achieving more than 15 percent of the Committee’s $1.2 trillion deficit reduction target.
