Categories: John Boehner, 113th House Republicans & Agriculture\Farming Industry
Speaker Boehner suffered another embarrassing defeat after his own caucus ran away from the House version of the Farm Bill. After expressing confidence that he had the votes for a bill, Mr. Boehner watched as 62 of his fellow Republicans voted no on the overall bill. After the vote, Mr. Boehner had the audacity to blame House Democrats on the defeat, which Leader Pelosi quickly shot down.
