Read this It is a bit dated, the bill in question was already passed and signed unfortunately. But it briefly explains the major reasons why farm subsidies (in my own humble opinion) are a really bad idea. The reason I put this on my blog is because of its implications on global poverty.
UPDATE: Another article on subsidies. This time subsidized surgar from the EU (which is a far worse subsidizer then the US)
Another one on US cotton subsidies which are contributing to the poverty of 10 million Africans
