2000 Republican Primary Candidate for President


Family farms: Demand that Europe stop protecting theirs

Q: Since the family farmer is self-employed, would you cap government agriculture benefits to a modest one-family level? A: If we wake up one morning and the American food supply is controlled by a handful of corporations, we will regret it for the rest of our history. I will cap the benefits. I’ll enforce the anti-trust laws. But I’ll also make sure that China quits playing us for suckers. And I’ll tell our European allies, stop protecting your farmers or we will fight just as hard for our farmers.

Continue ethanol subsidy; find other uses for ag products

I applaud those who have developed new uses for agricultural products such as adhesives made from soybeans. And I support aggressive research that would further expand the many innovative uses for agricultural commodities. We need to continue the ethanol subsidy, which has brought additional marketing options to American corn growers.
