More on Agriculture
There isn’t much to get excited about when it comes to healthcare these days. Obamacare has failed to deliver the affordable outcomes it promised in just about every way imaginable. The broken promise which troubles me most is President Obama’s famous line, “if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it,” because this couldn’t have been any further from the truth.
Washington, D.C. – The Nebraska Farm Bureau was recognized this week for its work on behalf of Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers in implementing an association health plan to provide them greater access to healthcare. NEFB’s Chief Administrator, Rob Robertson, testified before the full Ways and Means Committee on the outstanding results delivered to its participants through protections for pre-existing conditions and reduced premiums.
From Congressman Smith:
WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald Trump on Thursday evening signed H.R. 4689, legislation championed by Congressman Adrian Smith (NE-03) and U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) to rollback outdated regulations negatively affecting ag producers in the Nebraska panhandle. The bill passed the House of Representatives in September and the Senate in December.
It’s a new year and a new Congress. While I would have preferred to retain Republican control of the House for the 116th Congress, I believe there are many things we can accomplish in Washington to serve the best interests of the American people.
2018 has been a productive year. The economic benefits of tax reform are on display throughout the country with businesses expanding and jobs being created all around us. While there is much left to be done, I’d like to discuss a few of our proudest accomplishments from the past year.
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) made the following statement after joining President Donald Trump at the White House for the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill.
Our nation’s natural resources have no better friend than farmers and ranchers whose livelihood depends on them. From growing crops to raising livestock, their long term success is dependent upon sustainable practices. This is why President Obama’s oppressive Clean Water Rule, also known as Waters of the United States (WOTUS), was unwelcome and even offensive to people throughout the Midwest.
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) delivered the following remarks on the floor of the House of Representatives shortly before voting in favor of the 2018 Farm Bill Conference Report, which passed by a vote of 369-47.

Mr. Speaker – I rise today to express my strong support for this farm bill conference report.
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) released the following statement after the Farm Bill conference report was released for consideration by the House of Representatives and Senate.
This week, we said goodbye to former President George H. W. Bush after his death at age 94 at his home in Houston. At the time of his wife’s death in April of this year, he and former First Lady Barbara Bush had been married for 73 years, which is the longest presidential marriage in history. President Bush will be remembered for many things, chief among them his governing during the collapse of the Soviet Union and his leadership during the Gulf War.
