Nebraska Congressman Adrian Smith says the House missed a real opportunity to approve reforms to the Farm Bill, which was barely approved after stripping the food stamp portion from it. That came after conservatives complained 20(B)Billion dollars in cuts to the trillion dollar program weren’t enough and liberals thought they were too much. Congressman Adrian Smith says liberals in Congress oppose any cuts to the growing food stamp program. . .

Congress is now on their August break, returning after Labor Day.
