Farm Bill Defeated in Blow to Boehner

The House defeated the farm bill resoundingly on a 195-234 vote, "dealing a blow to Speaker John A. Boehner and prompting a bitter round of finger pointing between Democratic and Republican leaders," Roll Call reports.

"Most Democrats opposed the bill, unhappy with a deep $20.5 billion, 10-year cut to food stamps and backed by a White House veto threat, while Republicans split into competing factions, with a sizable group opposing the bill over concerns it did not cut deeply enough."
