Boozman: President’s Tax and Spend Proposal a ‘Gut Punch’ to Rural America

Written by Press Release

October 28, 2021

WASHINGTON––U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) is warning Americans about the negative consequences of President Biden’s reckless tax and spending agenda. 

“The president’s plan would be an absolute gut punch to our family farmers and rural America as a whole, especially as inflation continues to skyrocket under this administration’s watch,” Boozman said in a speech on the senate floor.

Boozman has repeatedly pushed back on the president’s $3.5 trillion partisan plan. In August, the senator rejected the Biden-backed budget resolution and has since been highlighting its outrageous cost and left-wing, fundamentally flawed framework.  

As ranking member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, Boozman has called for public hearings, with witnesses, so agriculture producers and stakeholders in rural America have an opportunity to offer input on the proposal. 

“There is a feeling among many of the people who do not live in our nation’s cities that their political leaders do not value their expertise, or their opinions, and do not understand their lives,” Boozman said during an ag hearing on Wednesday. “When the Senate agriculture committee decides to forgo the expertise and opinion of those we are entrusted to represent, we are not living up to what should be our commitment to our farmers, ranchers, and rural communities.”

This is the second time this year Democratic leaders have bypassed the committee process as the Biden administration aims to advance radical policies despite an evenly divided Senate and Democrats’ slim majority in the House of Representatives.
