“I’m all for principles, but I’m not an ideologue,” says Senate Agriculture Chairman Pat Roberts of Kansas in explaining why he wrote a farm bill that doesn’t add new work requirements to the food stamps program. He and the Agriculture panel’s ranking Democrat, Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, explain their bipartisan approach as they prepare for a fight with the House conservatives pushing the food stamp changes.
