PHOTOS: Farm Bill supporters rally in D.C.
Farmers from around the country rallied in D.C. Wednesday. They're message was strong but simple: "pass the farm bill now". Here's a look at how today's event played out at the Capitol Reflecting Pool.
Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), who was raised in rural Michigan and is chairwoman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, said "it's crazy" to allow the current Farm Bill to expire and if that happens, "we turn back the clock in rural America to 1949" when it comes to farm policies.
