On October 26th, Congressional leaders and the White House announced a budget agreement that would suspend the debt ceiling until March 16th, 2017.  The agreement would also dramatically affect crop insurance policies previously passed in the 2014 Farm Bill.

Upon the agreement’s announcement, Representative Rick Crawford (AR-1) released the following statement:

   “Not only does this agreement raise budget-busting spending levels without any consent from the vast majority of House members, but this deal also raids policies like crop insurance, which was previously debated in committee and passed into law. These secret, last minute negotiations subvert the legislative process and go against the priorities of the Americans we represent, and I will not support the agreement.
