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.’”

“The sweat and toil of Iowa farmers help feed our families and fuel our cars. When Joe Biden’s disastrous policies hurt our farmers, they’re also hurting our country at large.” – RNC Spokesman Kush Desai
