House passes farm bill

Cows are fed at a farm in Danville, Vt. For decades, country and city interests had come together every few years to pass the farm bill, a measure that provided billions in subsidies to farmers and businesses in rural areas and food stamp money for urbanites. No more. The House passage of a bill to reauthorize farm supports but not food stamps highlighted how the country-city political marriage has become yet another victim of partisan politics.
