Response to scarletwoman (Reply #2)

7. I read further in the article and found a strange bedfellows moment...

"While there was little dispute over the difficult straits of the livestock industry, there was opposition to the bill from environmental groups disturbed by the cuts to the conservation programs, anti-tax groups who saw the bill as another government bailout and agriculture groups who have been pushing the House to vote on a five-year farm bill that, in addition to making fundamental changes in agriculture safety nets, would restore the disaster relief programs. The current long-term farm bill expires at the end of September."

Which must be why the bill didn't unanimously pass as some would assume.
