Obama Dismisses Farmers Concerns During Bus Tour

Saying he himself was from a “farm state”, President Obama dismissed the concerns of a farmer, who during an Obama bus stop in Illinois, asked about pending Federal regulations that will pile on top of those farmers already face.

Obama told the farmer, “don’t always believe what you hear…”  There are strong indications that some of the new pending legislation concerning farmers in some states would include:  forcing them to get commercial drivers licenses to operate heavy machinery on their OWN land, and even logging the number of hours they sleep to meet OSHA standards…just like some truckers must do now.
