LLPH Thanks Rep. Duncan for his vote against the Farm Bill and encourages him to continue holding his ground with fellow conservatives in and out of congress against massive and wasteful spending by both parties.
The House Farm bill just failed by a vote of 195-234. I voted AGAINST the bill because it locks in spending at stimulus levels. To put the size of the Farm bill in perspective, this version was nearly twice the size of the one that President Bush vetoed in 2008. Simply, it’s too much spending and it’s unfair for the country to combine welfare spending and agricultural policy in the same bill.
