From the Office of Senator Ted Cruz:
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) today expressed his disappointment with S. 954, the Farm Bill:
Agriculture forms the backbone of the Texas economy and is an integral part of our proud heritage, as it is for the rest of the nation. Unfortunately, the current farm bill gives far less attention to the needs of farmers than it does to politicians and special interests. For an issue as critical to our nation's safety and American livelihoods as ensuring a reliable food supply, I am disappointed that Washington's cynical politics have again trumped any real reform.
