Defending Ohio Farmers and Agriculture

John has been a consistent advocate for free markets, fair trade, and lower taxes -- and Buckeye State farmers have responded with their consistent support.

Ohio agriculture is a $68 billion industry, with one in every six Ohioans deriving his or her livelihood from an agriculture-related job. Scores of Ohio’s 73,000 farms lie in the Eighth Congressional District, which is why John’s record and experience on the House Agriculture Committee is so important.

Boehner helped write the Freedom to Farm Act and has led the charge to eliminate the Death Tax. And he has fought against the Democrats’ national energy tax which would devastate the agriculture industry and raise costs on the rural areas of the Eighth District.

John takes great pride in fighting for what’s in the best interest of Ohio farmers and their families. It has been a top priority for him since he arrived in Congress in 1991, and it remains a top priority as he continues his service on Capitol Hill.
