Paul Ryan Speaks Up

Paul Ryan (R-WI) is speaking against the rule.  Rough excerpts:

"My amendment is being blocked on real payment limits- It received a vote in 2002 and got 200 votes"

"The House Farm Bill extends farm commodity programs with no real reform"

"The commodity reform is a sham"

 "This increases the limits on direct payments while removing limits on marketing loans"

"The bill hurts people in the developing world"

Rep. Ryan attempted to introduce a payment limits amendment that the Center for Rural Affairs strongly supported.  It was very similar to the Grassley-Dorgan proposal currently in the Senate.  The amendment was blocked by House leadership.
