Ding Dong, the Farm Bill is DEAD!!!
Too many Teabirther amendments have sunk the federal once-every-five-years Farm Bill. Good. It had turned into a Christmas tree for every tea-drooling inbred puke to tack on every imaginable amendment.
Most importantly, the Steve King Amendment is dead. Unfortunately the author of this amendment is still alive, but the Steve King Karma Watch continues.
As you may know — not that the mainstream “media” has ever bothered to mention it — the Steve King Amendment would have overturned dozens of state laws mandating humane treatment for farm animals, and hundreds of local ordinances prohibiting dog fighting and cockfighting.
The linked article doesn’t mention the Steve King Amendment; neither does any other article that I found. Most of the media coverage was devoted to the teatard amendment to take away food stamps from those lowly riffraff who only work two jobs instead of three or four.
A lot of Democrats voted against the Farm Bill, and so did a lot of rightwing Republicans. The Club for Growth and Heritage Action campaigned against it because of the overall expense of the bill. Works for me. A broken clock is still right twice a day.
Steve King was unavailable for comment, probably because he had just finished sucking off a room full of factory farm lobbyists, and talking would have been a little, uhh, awkward.
