Romney in Iowa: Proposal of new agenda for rural America

“We already ask our farmers and ranchers to cope with natural disasters,” Romney said in remarks prepared for delivery at a campaign rally at the James and Margaret Koch farm. “They should not also have to battle a man-made disaster of taxes and regulations from Washington. Our economic recovery must also be a rural recovery, and my plan for a stronger middle class will ensure that our agricultural sector grows and thrives.”

To that end, Romney is proposing a rural agenda that would implement tax policies that support family farms and agribusiness, pursue trade policies intended to bolster the agriculture sector rather than limit it, ease onerous government regulations on farmers and businesses, and adopt energy policies that achieve independence by 2020.
