(WATCH) Iowa Farmer Bashes Biden for Policies Hurting American Farmers


Jim Boyer, an Iowa farmer, didn’t hold back on his critiques of the Biden administration and their disastrous policies decimating the American working-class.

“We need leadership,” he said during a Wisconsin GOP agriculture press call.

Biden is turning the U.S. into a “3rd-world country,” he added.


Boyer said he has a $250,000 tractor “sitting there” while parts are unavailable due to Joe Biden’s supply chain crisis.

And he explained the supply chain crisis is “getting worse, not better.”

Boyer went on Fox News and criticized the Biden regime for their policies that have wreaked havoc on American farmers.

Farmers are particularly disadvantaged among business owners by inflationary costs because they have less ability to pass some of those costs on to their customers, they said. Crop and livestock prices are determined by a multitude of factors, many of which are out of their control.

“Everybody’s running scared,” said Joe Zuercher, a farmer in Clayton County. “We don’t know when the end is coming, and that’s the part that probably is more crucial right now. How long are we going to have to withstand these crazy fuel prices?”

Zuercher was among a small group of farmers who were invited Tuesday by Iowa Republicans to discuss the challenges they face as planting season nears. The virtual chat was aimed squarely at the policies of President Joe Biden’s administration, which they said ignore a potential salve for fuel stability: ethanol produced from corn.

Fuel prices have been steadily climbing since November 2020 as the country has tried to pull itself from the economic turbulence of the coronavirus pandemic. Demand for fuel — and the cost to buy it — plummeted at the beginning of the pandemic, which led to production cuts here and abroad, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Fuel prices have been on the rise because of increasing demand and lower production.

The problem was recently exacerbated by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which caused a spike in gasoline and diesel prices that was higher than any three-week increase in the past three decades, the EIA reported last week.

Biden has pushed electric vehicles as a means to insulate the country from fluctuating fuel prices in the future, but it will likely take decades before electric vehicles outnumber gasoline vehicles in operation.

Biden has also contemplated resuming oil imports from Venezuela to help offset fuel supply chain disruptions caused by the overseas war. A number of federal lawmakers from Midwestern states have promoted biofuels as an alternative.

“It’s a gut punch when they’re looking at Venezuela and Saudi Arabia, and here, right in our Heartland, we have biofuels,” U.S. Rep. Randy Feenstra, R-Iowa, told the panel of farmers on Tuesday.

Ethanol industry officials in Iowa have said there is sufficient production capacity to replace the crude oil the United States had been importing from Russia before Biden recently halted those imports, which account for a small percentage of the overall U.S. fuel supply.
