Farm Bill passes in House, without food stamp funding

“Lawmakers voted 216 to 208 to make changes to federal agricultural policy and conservation programs and end direct subsidy payments to farmers. But the measure says nothing about funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamps, which historically constitutes about 80 percent of the funding in a Farm Bill.”

Apparently the needy don’t need food, that’s just a luxury item for them. Tax cuts for the wealthy are much more important. [/s]
