NTU Joins Coalition to Urge Congress to Find Real Savings in Ag Reform
February 15, 2013
Harvest Real Savings by Reforming Agriculture Policy
February 14, 2013
On behalf of the millions of Americans represented by the undersigned organizations, we write urging you to take common sense steps to reform federal supports for agriculture and save taxpayers at least $100 billion over the next decade. This may sound like an ambitious goal, but it is achievable with modest reforms that would still provide for a robust farm safety net.
The 113th Congress has a prime opportunity to reduce the federal government’s meddling in the agricultural sector while helping to pay down our $16 trillion national debt. A number of common sense steps can be taken to create a more accountable, responsive, and cost-effective agricultural policy.
It’s time for Congress to craft a limited, effective, and efficient safety net for American agriculture instead of lavish, poorly directed subsidies. That goal can be achieved while saving overburdened taxpayers at least $100 billion on farm payouts.
