RDI in The Hill

In The Hill, Sarah Jaynes calls for policies that support the small businesses, farmers, workers, and caregivers that drive our economy. The recently published Rural Policy Action Report focuses on our economic well being, particularly those that promote higher incomes and lower costs, generate growth — not policies prioritizing the rich and giant corporations.

This is what President Biden is describing when he says that we need to “grow the economy from the bottom up and middle out, not the top down.” When rural voters understand the choice between policies that prioritize their wellbeing versus policies that prioritize the wealthy and corporations, the choice is overwhelmingly clear.
