The House passed a farm bill today and split up the farm-related programs from the food stamp program which is good news. However, they still passed the Soviet-style central planning farm welfare bill without making a single reform. To see how bad the farm bill really is follow this link.
I am disappointed in all but one of the members of our Republican delegation, but I am especially disappointed in Marsha Blackburn who has always been one of my favorite legislators. I expected better from her. John Duncan of Knoxville, was the only Republican member of the Tennessee delegation to vote against it. He is my new favorite Tennessee legislator.
