Agriculture Bill goes down in Flames

The conservatives who think the Farm subsidy bill gave away too much money to the wrong people, and the dems who think the bill did not give away enough welfare dollars joined forces to defeat the legislation. 

Call a Waaaaaambulance for the ag lobbyists.  They are freaking out.


The Farm bill contained about $740 billion in food stamps and $200 billion in subsidies which are often welfare for the rich.

Pharmer is of the opinion that food stamp spending should be in a food stamp bill, and farm subsidies should be in a farm subsidy bill.  We the people, and our legislators should know exactly how the government intends to misappropriate our money.  Therefore, the mood on this Pharm about Farm bill defeat in the house is overall, ‘happy happy happy’.
