We already knew that Nevada rancher and notorious racist Cliven Bundy owes the federal government over $1 million in grazing fees, but we what didn’t know is he owes more money than all other ranchers combined.
Of the roughly 16,000 ranchers who graze cattle on BLM lands, 458 have late grazing bills totaling $237,000, according to agency data.
Compare that to the more than $1 million Bundy owes Uncle Sam for refusing to pay grazing fees on his Bunkerville, Nev., allotment beginning in 1993 and for trespassing fees he has been accruing since 1998.
Less than 1 percent of 16,000 ranchers have bills that are more than two months past due, which includes Cliven Bundy and 159 others.
Cliven Bundy’s bills are over 20 years past due and he owes more money than 458 other ranchers combined.
Trivia: Did you know that even if you were on welfare for 20 years straight (which isn’t actually possible) it wouldn’t even come close to $1 million?
If you were on welfare, unemployment, and food stamps for 20 years straight (also not possible) it still wouldn’t reach $1 million.
