U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) issued the following statement on Democratic threats to prevent or slow delivery of the Market Facilitation Payment program:

“This is ridiculous. House Democrats seem to be joining China in trying to inflict pain on our farmers, hoping it hurts President Trump. They appear solely focused on next year’s election and are now openly playing politics with farmers’ livelihood. That is unacceptable. The enemy is China, not farmers.”
