House Farm Bill Fails

Washington – Moments ago, the House’s $940 billion food stamp and farm bill failed by a vote of 195 to 234.  Heritage Action released the following statement from CEO Michael A. Needham:

“Today is a victory for the taxpayer and the free market.  Now is the time for the House to recognize what so many others have: The unholy alliance that has long dominated America’s agriculture and nutrition policy must end.”
