President Biden’s Economy is Hurting America’s Farmers

America runs on family farms. These multi-generational farms keep the nation fed and fueled, and farmers must have an economy that allows their businesses to thrive and a skilled workforce that can get the job done on time.

Due to the Biden administration’s attack on domestic energy production and record-high inflation rates, hardworking farmers are struggling to keep their farms operational for the next generation. From fuel to machinery to fertilizer, the cost of nearly everything essential for running a farm is up. Furthermore, farmers are also facing significant skilled labor shortages, which only adds more barriers to keeping their farms operational.

As the only Member of Congress from Wisconsin on the House Agriculture Committee in a decade and as a member of the bipartisan Agriculture Labor Working Group, I’m committed to ensuring our farmers have the resources they need and the environment they deserve to succeed. I’ve introduced and cosponsored multiple pieces of legislation that support farmers, including the Dairy Business Innovation Act, the FARM Act of 2023, and the Dairy Farm Resiliency Act. Additionally, in collaboration with my colleagues on the Agriculture Labor Working Group, we released a report that offers recommendations to improve the H-2A process so America’s farmers can have the reliable workforce they need.

Food security is national security, and the great contributions of our farmers can never be replaced. I will continue my work in Congress to reverse course on President Biden’s disastrous economy and protect our nation’s farms and farmers for generations to come.

The Trumpster came in and said America has had enough abuse by our world trading partners and did something about it. President Trump replaced NAFTA with The USMCA, substituting the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with a mutually beneficial win for North American workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses. The Agreement creates more balanced, reciprocal trade supporting high-paying jobs for Americans and growing the North American economy.

Biden's policies have since eroded much of what made this a huge success. Farm commodity prices are down, and farming has lost its sustainability at least for now.
