Walz embarrasses us on the Farm Bill
To the editor:
We should all be embarrassed by the behavior of Tim Walz regarding the farm bill.
Walz used the label “extremist” to describe anyone who wants to trim back the excessive price tag of $1 trillion over ten years. Name calling instead of giving information is unbecoming a Congressman.
Those who want to reform the broken food stamp program, Walz described as “wanting to eliminate government altogether” – a complete falsehood.
And Walz is adamantly opposed to following the good government principle that every bill should deal with only one subject. Separating food stamps and farm policy is the only way we have a chance to have good bills in either area. If a bill can’t stand on its own merits, it needs to be changed.
Congressmen like Walz are the reason government spending is out of control. They are the reason Congress has an all time low approval rate.
Name calling, falsehoods, unwillingness to be part of good government procedure and out of control spending – that is what we have in Tim Walz.
