House Farm Bill

The Republicans in the House of Representatives have passed the Farm Bill which includes subsidies to corporate agriculture and even members of both the House and the Senate in Congress who own farms (actually they're just part owners and not the people who run it), but they exclude the entire Food Stamp Program, citing that will be taken up in another bill, meaning not.

So while members of Congress line their fat ass pockets with taxpayers' money they're not willing to put basic food on the table of working people and families who need food stamps to survive. They even refused to vote on an amendment banning members of Congress from receiving farm subsidies.

That's the message they sent to the people of America. They're in it for themselves and only themselves. And you still think the Republicans represent the American people?
