BREAKING: House passes 2018 Farm Bill. Passing this bill not only shows support for agriculture, but it shows the American people that we are not satisfied with the status quo, which is a welfare system that perpetuates poverty. Despite our growing economy, we still have 9 million more people on SNAP today than we did at the height of the recession when jobs were scarce and unemployment reached double-digits. By investing historic amounts in workforce training, this bill will help pair work-capable adults receiving SNAP benefits with jobs being created by our economy. We should always strive to make government better and this bill does that.

Happy Constitution Day! Our constitution was ratified 230 years ago today.

Together, we supported this year’s farm bill, which strengthens programs important to the farmers and ranchers who are the backbone of our economy and countless communities. But for the first time ever, this bill is also focused on ending the cycle of poverty that so many American families face every day. Some in our conference have prevented passage of this bill due to unrelated policy issues, but hopefully, they will get another chance this week to do the right thing and vote for this bill that is critical to farmers and getting people back to work. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/op-eds/if-youve-eaten-today-thank-a-farmer
