Our Backyard: KBOO's locally produced environmental series. Our very own Congressman Earl Blumenauer and the President have ended up in the same bed over the 2008 Farm Bill, but perhaps not exactly for the same reasons. The Washington Post says the Farm Bill is another chapter in the ignominious history of the Bush-era Congress. Blumenauer, by his action, seems to agree and says it's a badly flawed piece of legislation.
Notable quote on the 2008 Farm Bill: "Merely because the president is not the most popular person in the country today doesn't mean he's always wrong," -- Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.)
