(Washington, D.C.) — House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-Queens, the Bronx) issued the following statement after House Republicans passed their partisan Farm Bill:

“Today, House Republicans chose to abandon rural communities and hungry Americans across the country. This partisan bill does nothing to help our country’s struggling farmers and leaves families to fend for themselves by gutting the critical anti-hunger benefits they rely on.

“Instead of continuing their attacks on vulnerable Americans, Republicans should join Democrats in our efforts to lift up families and expand opportunities for all. Democrats stand ready to work on behalf of the American people, the question is: why aren’t Republicans?”
