The American Farm Bureau wants to know what the next president plans to do about many things. FB News asked Obama and McCain to answer a stack of questions about trade and taxes, immigration and energy, climate change and, yep, the Farm Bill.
The latest issue of FB News presents both candidates’ answers, plus an editorial.
“Where Obama seems to come out stronger on issues like the farm bill and renewable fuels, McCain might look better on taxes and government regulation of farms and livestock operations,” said Linda Johnson, who directs policy implementation for the American Farm Bureau Federation. “Farmers and ranchers have to weigh it all and see where the candidates stand with them. For many it could be a tough choice this year.”
