No Soup For You

I'll be the first to admit that the farm bill includes some dubious provisions. But keep in mind, two-thirds of the funds allocated in it are for emergency food assistance and food stamps, which are used by one in eight Mainers.

What's more, Sen. Snowe--who joined Rep. Allen and Rep. Michaud to vote in favor of the bill--is calling the legislation, "essential to Maine's various industries."

So why did Sen. Collins vote against it?
