The only good thing is that it shows us who the republicans are looking out for.....it is not us.

Both sides knew that this bill would expire at the end of September. Why didn't they deal with this months ago? It is a bad idea for the Farm bill expiration and the election to be held in the same year. If the bill had expired in an off year, I'm guessing there wouldn't be so much delay in getting it passed.

Our elected officials are more interested in getting re-elected than doing the job they were elected to do!

The longer they delay this bill, the better chance that it will not pass. That is good for the taxpayer.

If you want higher food prices keep believing that. When you are hungry living in the city with little or no place to grow your own food if you know how; life will be 10 times worse than it is know. It is time the 47- 99 % have more of a say in when and how rules are made that affect our lives every day. We all know the 1% are the ones making the rules.
