The Effects of Failure to Pass The Farm Bill: Forward to the Past!

I'm not a fan of subsidizing row-crops but I'm also repulsed by the House Republicans failure to do their job which is on the same level as Harry Reid's failure to produce a budget for almost four years.
If they want to abdicate their responsibilites they should also abdicate their positions of power.

Or, in the case of Reid, since he has violated the Oath of Office:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same...
He should probably be sentenced to listen to Joe Biden for all eternity.

From the Kearny (NE) Hub: 

Hope is fading for a new five-year farm bill
...If a new farm bill or an extension is not enacted by Sept. 30, the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1938 and the Agricultural Act of 1949 go back into effect. They would replace current farm commodity programs with a system of price supports much more generous than those in current law, although the full force of those changes would not be felt until next year....MUCH MORE
Isn't that special?
