President Obama Uses Radio Address Bully Pulpit to Push for Farm Bill Consideration

Sun, 12 Aug 2012 07:34:36 CDT

President Obama Uses Radio Address Bully Pulpit to Push for Farm Bill Consideration In his weekly radio address, President Barack Obama spent his weekly national broadcast time to discuss the 2012 drought and what his administration is doing to help. And, he called on Congress to pass a farm bill that includes disaster and drought assistance- adding to the pressure on GOP leadership to allow debate on the 2012 Farm Bill proposal that passed the House Ag Committee in July. He called on Americans to call or email their members of Congress to push Congress to action- in doing so, the President becomes an unexpected ally to House Ag Committee Chairman Frank Lucas who has repeatedly called on leadership to give his bill floor time.

The President called the efforts by his Administration an "All Hands on Deck" response. From earlier this past week, click here for details of the latest programs that the Obama Administration under the direction of USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack has done for producers.
