Stabenow calls House passed Farm Bill "insult to rural America"

WASHINGTON D.C. (WTVB) - Congressional Republicans are calling it a victory, even though hundreds of farming organizations, Democrats and even some conservative groups are furious, after they passed a Farm Bill that doesn’t include the federal food stamp program.  Republicans want deep cuts in nutrition programs.

Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow who helped steer a bi-partisan bill that sailed thru the upper chamber, said the House version “wasn’t a real farm bill, it was an insult to rural America”.
