Warren Finds Common Ground With Conservatives On Big Ag, But Her Farm Plan Is Straight From The New Deal

Democratic Massachusetts Senator and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren recently unveiled her plan to create a “new farm economy” in the U.S. if she is elected president. Her plan would return power to small farmers and break up big agricultural corporations, something long championed by conservatives, but the details of her plan come directly from big government New Deal policies.

Sen. Warren’s plan would seek to break up large agribusinesses which, according to Warren, have an anti-competitive grip on the farming industry. Her plan would also impose government-implemented price controls on farm products and pay farmers to not use part of their field in order to combat climate change.
