From Rep. Bill Sali: The Farm Bill

July 27th, 2007 by Halli

Statement from Rep. Bill Sali

“Congress needs to pass a workable Farm Bill. H.R. 2419 is not a workable
Farm Bill in its current form.

“The Senior Democratic leadership injected a tax increase behind closed
doors and at the last minute before it came to the floor. This $7.8 billion
tax increase over 10 years goes directly to fund an increase in the food
stamp section of the Farm Bill. The Democrats did this so that I would have
to make a choice between farmers and the middle class. I will not support
any bill that forces me to make a choice between American farmers and
American manufacturers. This bill would raise taxes for businesses
employing 12,900 Idahoans and now threatens to jeopardize our country’s
strong economy by punishing manufacturers who employ 5.1 million American
workers and pay $325 billion in wages.

“I have never voted for a tax increase and I cannot support this bill in its
current form. However, I hope that the partisan differences in this bill
will be ironed out by the time that this bill goes to conference. I believe
that the other chamber will remove this costly and politically motivated
