Congressman Collin Peterson Not Enamored with Ryan Budget Proposal

Congressman Collin Peterson Not Enamored with Ryan Budget Proposal
U.S. House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin C. Peterson, D-Minn., made the following statement regarding the Republican budget proposal for fiscal year 2014:


ďFor the third time, the House Majority has put forward a political messaging document rather than a realistic budget that makes the balanced, tough choices we need to get our country back on solid financial footing. The American people are tired of political games. Itís time to get serious.


ďThe House Agriculture Committee has repeatedly shown that it is possible to work together to find budget savings in a bipartisan fashion by making balanced cuts across farm bill programs. It wasnít an easy process but we did it because thatís our job. If the House Republicans do take the Ryan budget numbers seriously, I donít see how they can be serious about passing long-term farm policy this year. If these are the budget priorities for the House Majority, agriculture might best be served by again extending the current farm bill.Ē
