Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) says no to another farm bill extension.
In remarks on the Senate floor Monday prior to starting business on the immigration reform bill, Senator Reid began by noting that last week’s defeat of the farm bill on the House floor was “the first time the House of Representatives defeated a farm bill since the program was created in the 1930′s.”
Reid says he was sorry to hear the House leadership blame the defeat on the Democrats. “They had to blame someone. They couldn’t blame themselves, even though they should,” he said.
