Farm Bill

Reuters writer Charles Abbott reported yesterday that, “President Barack Obama, in a rebuke to proposals by House Republicans for steep cuts in food stamps for the poor, urged Congress on Thursday to pass a farm bill ‘that protects children and vulnerable adults in time of need.’

“Obama put the long-delayed bill, more than a year overdue, among three priorities for resolution by end of the year. Also on the list were immigration reform and a budget agreement.”
