Our federal agriculture policy is nearly 100 years out of date.
Modern farmers have access to tools, techniques, transportation, information and market analysis that were unheard of when our current agricultural policies were established. America’s industrial farmer can easily compete in the free market without any government assistance.
I will work in Congress to end all farm subsidies, which cause our farms to be underutilized and drive up prices to the consumers.
Ethanol is not a sustainable fuel source, requiring more gasoline to produce than it provides as fuel. I will seek to end the mandate for ethanol additives to gasoline. This will allow the free market to determine the best use of our corn crops. Corn currently being grown for ethanol may be repurposed to livestock feed, which will bring down the price of meat at the grocery store.
