The Daily Quote

“The failed vote [on the Farm Bill] is somewhat of an embarrassment for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and the rest of the GOP leadership. This is just the latest example of their inability to get Republican legislation over the finish line due to conservatives’ defections on the final vote.”
