Administration must stop sacrificing agriculture

Voice of our Readers

To the Editor:
I appreciated Lori Sorenson’s June 13 article on the meeting that Congressman Hagedorn  held to discuss agricultural issues. I also attended that meeting June 7.
It was really surprising to hear a “conservative” Republican defend federal payments to farmers as the solution to markets impacted by trade tariffs. Most farmers don’t want handouts; they just want their markets back. It’s discouraging to have the Administration sacrifice the ag sector of the economy to help “solve” trade issues for high tech companies.
It was also very disappointing to have Congressman Hagedorn discuss “problems” at the southern U.S. border in his attempts to answer questions about health care costs. It’s going to be important to continue watching his voting record.
