Video: Rep. Martha Roby Supports Farm Subsidies, Opposes Redistribution of Wealth

| by Michael Allen

Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) recently gave an interview to online journalist Jan Helfield, who asked Rep. Roby how she opposes wealth redistribution, but also supports farm subsidies (video below).

Rep Roby said: “No, I actually think there is a safety net that is appropriate for our farmers.”

When Helfield asked how these subsidies are not a form of redistribution, Rep. Roby didn't give a clear answer and then said she had to leave.

Rep. Roby did not mention that she receives campaign funds from the agricultural industry.

However, Helfield did not mention that any form of taxation is a redistribution of wealth.
