Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (MN-06) released the following statement today in response to the House adjourning without considering a farm bill.
"I enjoy good communication with farmers in my district and with state and national farm organizations. The farmers, farm organizations and myself are more than frustrated that Congress has adjourned without finding a solution to pass a reformed farm bill. Farmers and all Americans who consume farm products have every right to be concerned by Washington's inaction. This is just another illustration of the broken ways of Washington.
"The farm bill as currently written fails to reform a problematic budget program. It fails to provide farmers with the certainty they need to sign contracts and prepare for next year's growing season. We need a farm bill that provides for a safe, reliable food supply. I am committed to supporting a solid, reform-minded farm bill that reflects what consumers and farmers need."
