It's a bi-partisan amendment that was attached to the farm bill that has no effect on this coming election. The house has to approve it first, too.
Big news here folks. WOW. What a bombshell.
YAWN.

But it is interesting that stuff like this can be attached to a FARM bill...perhaps because so much is BS.
