So yeah. It’s September 30th, 2013 and there’s talk of a government shutdown at midnight tonight if Congress doesn’t pull it together. Also the Farm Bill (which is really just a continuation of the old bill because Congress can’t manage to even get a Farm Bill done once every 5 years!) expires tonight.
The Farm Bill really does need some serious work done. There are plenty of things that could be done to save taxpayer money and streamline the existing programs. And even though I’m going to work tomorrow regardless of what Congress does, my sister who works at our county Farm Service Agency may not!
