Opportunities Missed On Farm Bill

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.┬áCongressman Adrian Smith says liberals in Congress oppose any cuts to the growing food stamp program. . .

The House action leaves it in an uncertain position with the Senate…if negotiations even begin when Congress returns in September. Smith acknowledges the mess, but says Congress needs to act. . .

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