We were, but it was given away.

Heads up! Good news!

From Heritage Action:

You Stopped the Food Stamp and Farm Bill

Thanks to your hard work, this afternoon the U.S. House of Representatives voted 195 – 234, stopping the $940 billion food stamp and farm bill dead in its tracks!

Conservatives across the country called, wrote letters to the editor, and visited their Members of Congress in opposition to this mammoth spending bill. Our team worked hard to back you up with information and followup meetings with your Members of Congress.

This is a monumental win for taxpayers, consumers, the free market and yes, even farmers. The misnamed “farm bill” maintained the unholy alliance between food stamps and farm policy. Eighty percent of the spending in the bill went toward food stamps. Finally, after nearly 40 years of escalating costs to taxpayers and consumers, you stopped in the House.

As our nation nears $17 trillion in debt, Americans can rest easier tonight knowing that another reckless and irresponsible $1 trillion bill is not on its way to becoming law.

This victory is a result of your hard work. Thank you for everything you have done throughout this important battle.
