Once again taking the "Do Nothing Now" approach, the U.S. House Thursday approved (by voice vote no less) a one month delay that means no final action on the much debated Farm Bill until January.
Congress has been dithering over the Farm Bill for the past two years, dragged this way by one lobbying power and that way by another.
The Senate still has to give it's okay to the delay, and U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney, D-2, says it isn't likely to be a very happy session.
"They're pretty irritated with us in the House," he said Thursday afternoon.
Republican House Speaker John Boehner is "hell bent to get out of here," Courtney explained of the GOP leader's decision to have House members depart for the holidays by the end of this week.
