From The Progressive Farmer:

Caroline Kitchens of the group R Street Institute said the rejected crop-insurance changes were not “poison pills” but “common-sense reforms” that had been championed in budgets by both President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama.

“Not only is it terrible optics for Republicans, but it’s also morally indefensible to be demanding more from the poorest Americans who are welfare recipients while at the same time just making it easier for the richest farmers to game the system.”
