Thank you for the clarifying update to this posting. It is often difficult to determine the source of the welfare payments as the state often administrates federal programs--blurring the lines of responsibility.

In fairness, Mr. Newman was responding to his idealogical approach to the notion of "subsidy," which according to the question includes mass transit, construction projects, public sector make work jobs, as well as farm business subsidy. Singling out farm welfare is a polarizing and unfair characterization of the question, and his response.

I think all District 18 voters, as well as Mr. Newman, would welcome the opportunity to openly discuss this topic, and others, with the DFL candidate Hal Kimball, who so far is unwilling to discuss ANY topic of interest to this district.
