From our partners at the Center for Rural Affairs:
Please sign our petition to help ensure farm program payments help the small and mid-size family farms they are intended to serve.
The time is long overdue to close the loopholes that mega-farms use to get around payment limits, access virtually unlimited federal payments, and use those payments to drive their smaller neighbors out of business. In 2007 then Presidential candidate Barack Obama pledged to close those loopholes. Fulfilling that pledge is long overdue as well. The Obama Administration has the authority to do this now. And the time is now for them to deliver on the promise President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden made while campaigning for vote in Iowa.
Stand with us today, sign the petition, and make sure your voice is heard!
