Today, Republican Leader of the House Agriculture Committee, Glenn 'GT' Thompson (R-PA), issued the following statement after House Democrats passed their reckless tax-and-spend agenda on a party line vote:

“Congressional Democrats spent months crafting this massive legislation behind closed doors, ignoring input from the Agriculture Committee, our members, and most importantly, the communities we serve. This bill includes harmful tax increases and billions of dollars in new ideological spending as we face record inflation for everyday Americans and farm families.

“Speaker Pelosi and Democrat leadership have now rammed this highly unpopular bill through the House to the detriment of household budgets, American jobs, and our global competitiveness. This will only serve to further isolate rural America and compromise those values that make our country so great.”
