Thanksgiving Goodies Heavily Subsidized by Taxpayers

MADISON – Mmm! Mmm! You can almost smell that Thanksgiving feast cooking.

The breads. The scalloped corn. That funky green bean casserole with the French fried onions Great Aunt Beryl has been serving since the first Truman administration.

And don’t forget the turkey, that 60-pound monster that could serve an army but will feed about 25 people you have very little contact with for much of the year.

Now stuff it all with millions upon millions of taxpayer dollars, and you’ve got yourself the traditional subsidized American feast.
