Obama Takes 'Anti-Agriculture Approach,' Senator Says

October 31, 2012 11:18 AM

U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) takes President Barack Obama to task over his agriculture policy in a column published in the Sioux City Journal online.

As written in the column at SiouxCityJournal.com:

"As a former secretary of agriculture, I know what it means to establish policies that support our farmers and ranchers. I also recognize punishing overregulation and policies that wrap agriculture in red tape. For the past four years, producers have felt the stifling impact of President Obama’s anti-agriculture approach."

Learn why Johanns thinks Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney would act differently in the complete column at SiouxCity Journal.com.

  This isn't news, it's just another GOPer trying to get sucker votes for his side.

  Stifling impact of Obama's anti-agriculture policies, my he does have a gift for hype. Personally, I don't feel stifled. I feel blessed to have experienced four ridiculously profitable years in a row , even with the worst drought since 1988. Let's be honest , neither candidate knows or cares much about agriculture. Either one will basically go along with whatever program Congress comes up with(if they come up with one), and as farmers , we'll deal with whatever they throw at us, and at the end of the day still enjoy the best job & lifestyle in the world. Quit your whining!!!
