Farm Bill goes down in the House

Pretty amazing. The ability to govern is gone.

Re: Farm Bill goes down in the House

House leadership sustituted their bill for the one that passed the senate. The house version included substantial cuts to SNAP causing the loss of support.

Re: Farm Bill goes down in the House

SO, did they cut support for farmers? Direct payments and subsidized insurance?

Re: Farm Bill goes down in the House

Dole & Mcgovern created today's Farm Bill by combining farm and urban issues so they could get needed votes. Going alone as farmers, might result in losing support for farmbill/crop insurance, research, rural development, etc.

I saw a movie ( check that a few moments of a movie before my nap) last night where a fat guy was standing behind a skinny street lamp while being shot at.  Naturally bullets peppered the pole while the fleshy excesses hung out both sides and the guy walked away untouched.  Like an old abbott & costello scene.

Our federal budget has so many fleshy excesses standing behind functional "street lamp poles" that it is in fact, a comic routine.  The more pork we pack behind each pole the more stupid we look and one has to wonder if the final scene of this routine will be when the lights go out.

 

 

Fewer and fewer farmers and multitudes trying to hide behind them.
