The $940 Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013, otherwise known as the Farm Bill, has been defeated in the House of Representatives. Nearly 80 percent of the spending in the pork-laden monstrosity was set to be allocated for food stamps.
Fiscal conservatives are grateful that, for a change, common sense has prevailed:
So amazed and glad to see the Farm Bill fail!

Thank you GOP for finding your backbone and killing the Farm Bill. It's everything that's wrong with DC. Pork-filled, crap fest.

Proof their is indeed a God. Pork-laden, non-farm, "Farm Bill" goes down.

Kudos, House conservatives, for stopping the (non) Farm Bill.

Now that the Farm Bill has failed, Democrat congresspeople can go back to eating their usual arugula, Wagyu beef, and caviar #SNAPChallenge

The lesson here is that when the American people are informed and engaged, we can get our country back on the right track. #FarmBill
