Kim Reynolds pleads for federal assistance for Iowa farmers impacted by severe storms

Iowa farmers have collected over $39 billion in socialist farm subsidies over the last two decades, and many drive beautiful, brand-new pickup trucks and live in lavish rural homes, but they really do need more help.

DES MOINES – Governor Reynolds sent a letter co-signed with Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig to Secretary Tom Vilsack at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) requesting federal assistance for farmers whose properties were damaged or destroyed by severe weather on April 26-27, 2024.

Kim Reynolds refused federal help to feed hungry Iowa kids this summer, but never fails to chase socialist government handouts for farmers.

The governor issued the letter after being notified earlier in the day that a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration had been authorized by the White House, opening Federal Emergency Management Agency and Small Business Administration programs to disaster-affected homeowners, renters, and businesses in eight counties.

An excerpt from the letter to the USDA is included below:

“Iowa farmers have been significantly impacted by these storms and require assistance to recover from these catastrophic damages and to rebuild and replace destroyed grain bins, farm equipment, and operational business losses.  Disaster assistance programs only offered through the Farm Service Agency following a Secretarial Designation, including the Farm Loans Program and the Emergency Assistance for Livestock Program, are needed to help Iowa farmers recover from these storms.

“As a result, we respectfully request your consideration and prompt issuance of U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretarial Designation and activation of any and all eligible assistance for the following eight Iowa counties:  Clarke, Harrison, Mills, Polk, Pottawattamie, Ringgold, Shelby, and Union.”

Iowa farmers have collected over $39 billion in socialist farm subsidies over the last two decades, and many drive beautiful, brand-new pickup trucks and live in lavish rural homes, but they really do need more help.

The letter can be read in its entirety online.

Kim figures if she doesn’t get a federal job, she is going to have to depend on Iowa’s farmers whether it be as governor or Senator. Give them what they want and they will vote for you forever regardless if you don’t do anything else for them.

Or, maybe she is just doing her job.

Everything she does is to further her career.

So you must be a non-achiever

No, that is not true. I just won’t sell my soul to get what I want.
