Congressman Jodey Arrington Talks Farm Bill and Tariffs
Monday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin Congressman Jodey Arrington joined Dave and Matt to talk about the Farm Bill, food stamps and work requirements, tariffs, and more.
When asked if the thinks the Senate will let a Farm Bill through that has work requirements for able bodied adults, Arrington said that he thinks that they will allow something, even if it is not particularly meaningful, then said,
"I don't think that I will be happy with the farm bill that doesn't have welfare to work reforms when we have 7 million surplus jobs, and we have 10 million people that for over a year, who are able bodied adults, have been receiving food stamps and government assistance."
He went on to say, "It's not good for the recipients who get trapped in the cycle of dependence on government. It's not good for tax payers, and it's not good for the economy." Arrington hopes that they can get something meaningful done.
