In case you missed it… Iowa farmer Jim Boyer appeared on Fox & Friends this morning to talk about the agricultural community’s struggles under the Biden administration.

Boyer discussed how farmers are reeling from the Biden Gas Hike and the Biden-Buttigieg supply chain crisis, highlighting how his $250,000 tractor is unusable because of a shortage of spare parts like an EPA-required censor. “Costs about $40 to replace that censor, and they’re on backorder. I’m being told by my implement dealers that it could be a four to six week wait,” Boyer said. “There’s just not one of them in the country. So I don’t know if they’re sitting on a ship outside of L.A. or if they’re still in China or where they’re at, but we just can’t get them. So I have a piece of equipment that’s collecting dust in a machine shed.”

Asked what his message is to Biden on behalf of the agricultural community and farmers across the country, Boyer delivered a poignant yet scathing response: “Well, I guess I would say, ‘Mr. President, your policies and your leadership style is not only hurting yours and the Democrats’ poll numbers, but it’s hurting American farmers. It’s hurting Americans. … I just ask the president that he doesn’t squander those opportunities and those dreams for our next generations.’”
