HR 1947 (House vote of Jun. 20, 2013)

(Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act)(House rejected "Farm Bill" on 195-234 vote; bill contained $955 billion in spending over the next 10 years primarily on Food Stamp programs with no mechanism to pay for the spending; bill represented a 57% increase in "Farm Bill" spending over the 2008 "Farm Bill"; bill would have given Obama Administration locked-in permanent increases in Food Stamp spending; while bill failed to garner sufficient Democrat support, Democrats largely voted against bill because it required, as a condition of receiving Food Stamps, that able-bodied recipients either be employed or be looking for work).
