This week President Biden delivered his State of the Union address. At the conclusion of his speech, Republican Leader of the House Agriculture Committee, Rep. Glenn “GT” Thompson, issued the following statement:

“Between surging input costs, skyrocketing fertilizer prices, the highest inflation in 40 years, and endless regulatory uncertainty, the Biden administration’s failing policies remain out-of-touch with the challenges and everyday needs of farmers, ranchers, foresters, and consumers. Rather than tackling these issues, President Biden continues to bend to the will of the most vocal progressives, demanding policies that yield no relief and contribute to substantial burdens on American taxpayers. Farm families need relief, reliable markets, and steadfast leadership. President Biden missed the mark this evening, providing a great deal of Washington speak and lip service to boilerplate proposals. Despite these shortcomings, I remain committed to working with my colleagues to provide genuine relief to the hardworking men and women who feed and fuel our country.”
