Here is what really happened. The House passed a Farm Bill out of committee. It was two draconian, but it would have has enough support from Democrats that it would have passed. However, 62 Republicans proposed an amendment to cut SNAP (food stamps) by even more, $20 billion. Afraid of opposing InsaniTEA, the rest of the Republicans goose-stepped, and the amendment became part of the bill. That was a poison pill for Democrats, and most of those who had supported it withdrew their support. However, Boehner brought the bill to the floor, because with enough Republicans he needs no support from Democrats. The reason that the bill did not pass is that same Republicans, who proposed the amendment slashing food stamps, stabbed Boehner in the back, by voting against the bill anyway, because they want to steal even more food from the mouths of hungry children. Now Republican leaders claim it was Democrats, who betrayed Boehner, and that is a lie. Boehner is a victim of TEAbuggery! Even the NY Times got this all wrong.

Is the sun coming down on Boehner? Or was this bill just too much Right wing craziness? Cantor proves again that he is full of Hot Air.

Poor Boehner. He can't do enough to impoverish those of us who are in dire straights but his own Nazies won't agree with him how best to bury us alive.

I am glad the divide and conquer element led to a good outcome...just as it has once or twice before.

Ty Tom. . .for your usual astute observations. Agree with all [so far] and taking a cue from Carol H's comment. . . i have developed a gastrointestinal disorder from looking at Agent Orange and the Azz-hatters too long. .

I'm just glad that the farm bill was voted down to no passage.
Just too many riders, poison-pills in it.

About time Boehner got smacked down. He needs a good spanking more often. lol.

Ty, Tom.

"I am not a big Steny Hoyer fan, but I loved the way he chopped Steve Cantor down to size, explaining how Republicans sabotaged their own bill. The Republican Party could not survive with a base of billionaires, so they sowed the wind and courted Birchers, the Klan, The extremist-militias, religious extremists, and hatemongers of every kind to swell their base. Now they are inheriting the whirlwind. But the extremists should beware, as should we all, because this has happened before. Consider the Night of the Long Knives."

Very nice story. It is good to see republicans eating their young, just leaves less of them around to muck up the House. Nothing could be better for this country than internecine warfare amongst the republican party, well, except for its complete dissolution. Which may well happen within a couple of generations as virtually no one in this country is as extreme as those few actually sitting in congress and that fact is becoming clearer with each new poll on issues the republicans hold dearest. When 60+ percent of the people disagree with you, you are on your way to extinction. And the absolute coolest thing about that is that they don't see it coming and are not evolving their tactics to remain viable, rather they are getting even more radical, which is just, YAY, for the country.

Looks like Boehner got slapped around like an Orange faced step child. He has yet again demonstrated how relentlessly stupid he is. Personally I am wondering if they will get the Wasilla Turkey strangler who dispatched several turkeys behind Sarah Palin's back a few years back, just after she had pardoned a turkey ... and people said she didn't know what irony is. Well, she didn't know Africa was a continent. Still I was always of the impression that Boehner was a man who had been anal probed on a regular basis as he does tend to walk a bit funny or is that due to the bad back that got him out of doing military service in 1968.

Despite his scumbagginess I sometimes feel bad for the orange man. He tries on occasion to be somewhere in the neighborhood of reasonable, but every time he does so he ends up cut and bruised.

Isn't it about time Republicans realized everything they stand for is terrible and unsupportable by sane people and resigned and moved to their dream state, Somalia?

The Crazies outsmarted themselves on this one. Glad to see how they double-crossed Boehner. Hope he is out of there next election, along with all the crazies.

Thanks, Tom. But, I'm not so sure this bill is dead. We must carefully watch to see if they try to pass it, and what changes are made. I'm getting to the point where I'm finding that anything that passes the House can't be good for most of us.

Personally, I love it. These right-wing-crazies continue to self destruct one bill at a time. Boner got what he so well deserves, a slap down by his own people. What a disgrace the Repub party is.

Chris Hayes: "So listen up John Boehner if your off somewhere with wet eyes and a lit cigarette mourning your defeat today. Buck up! This was a bad bill anyway. Good riddens to bad rubbish! Now pick yourself up, dust yourself off. Go pass a farm bill that isn't a colossally regressive piece of crap."

I just love Chris' direct, mince no words approach to telling it as it is.

Steny Hoyer didn't let moss grow under his feet as he put Eric Cantor in his place. One of the days Republican/Teabaggers might learn that when they play with fire, they will get burned. Let's hope that it is after they have been thrown into the unemployment line by the electorate.

I would have thought that Fincher and any other elected representative would be in conflict of interest for receiving gvernment subsidies. What a pile of crap! Fincher, and any others, should have to repay any and all subsidies received while in office.
