Re: They already get government funding..
Rural Welfare from the Department of Agriculture:
Electricity, Water, Sewage, Telephone, Cell Phone, Roads, Internet, Schools, School Lunches....Billions and Billions every year
Rural Welfare from NTIA and the FCC
Rural Welfare from Interior
Rural Welfare from Congress - Ask Mich McConnel why HIS rural state gets more than $2 in federal spending for every $1 in federal taxes paid by the people of his rural state while California gets about 75 Cents. 42% of Kentucky's state budget comes from the Federal treasury - only a point or two higher than Sam Brownback's Kansas (but not touching the 66% Federal Budget contribution made to CATHOLIC CHARITIES.) Nikki Haley's state gets even more. No one beats tea bagger Palin's Alaska haul though - except for that great individualist, Haley "I want to be president and make all of American look like Mississippi: Fat, Lazy, Poor and Stupid" Barbour and the Great Welfare State of Mississippi.
On the other hand being able to call the farmers out in that rural area and buy some beef and some corn to eat, and cotton for your skivvies and wood to build your home and so on is pretty handy too.. unless you're that naked, hungry city guy.
