I see a different 1% under attack, and it's equally absurd. I'm talking about farmers.
Yes, farmers are just 1% of the U.S. population and that's being generous. Of the USA's 320 million people, there are 3.2 million farmers operating 2.1 million farms. 57% of those farms had less than $10,000 in agricultural sales in 2012, the most recent year for data from the National Agricultural Statistics Service.
