Red River Farm Network in D.C.
North Dakota Farm Bureau is one of several sponsors of the Red River Farm Network's (RRFN) Washington Watch program from Washington, D.C.
In this week's FarmNetNews, RRFN features interviews with several D.C. dignitaries, including Congressman Rick Berg:
"North Dakota Congressman Rick Berg says the budget situation in Washington is dire and a dramatic approach is necessary. “Forty percent of the money we spend, we’re borrowing and half of that we’re borrowing from foreign countries and half of our foreign debt is coming from China,” said Berg, “Everyone understands that if your banker is China, the dynamics that creates for the future are scary.” Berg says these decisions impact the economic viability of every small business and every farm.
