Jeff Fortenberry

We'll mention our own Congressman for good measure. Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) has promoted some excellent measures within the Agriculture Committee, but he is very upset over the tax measure providing offsets. His feelings are being echoed by all of the Republicans speaking, while Democrats are singing the Farm Bill's praises. And they don't think the offsets constitute "tax increases"

No surprises yet. We'll post again if anything of interest happens, or if something particularly outrageous is said. Hopefully, perhaps when they get around to the Kind Amendment, we'll see a little fire.
