As hardworking families across Iowa and America continue to bear the brunt of rising costs and inflation, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa)—a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee—highlighted the additional burden congressional Democrats’ reckless tax-and-spend spree will create for farmers and ranchers. Ernst underscored how the Democrats’ proposed “farm-to-table” tax hike included in their plan will make it more difficult for farm families to pass their businesses down to the next generation and thereby drive up the cost of producing and purchasing the food we all rely on to feed our families.
