Clint Didier Welfare Queen

Franklin County resident Clint Didier is running for the US Senate.  As a favorite of the Tea Party, Didier attends Tea Party rallies and rants about “socialism” and “welfare.”  With a red face and to loud applause, Didier proclaims his hatred for welfare and socialism. 

Super Bowl champion Clint Didier has collected checks from the federal government since 1995.  You and I and Tea Party adherents have subsidized his occupation since 1995.  Didier received the majority of the payments during the George Bush administration.  The overwhelming majority of payments came when Republicans controlled Congress.

Agriculture is critical to our nation.  I do not criticize growers for receiving government subsidies, but I criticize growers who rail against government programs and then benefit from the programs. 

Clint Didier is an Agri-socialist.
