This House version has been written by the majority Republicans - thus virtually guaranteeing united Democratic opposition - and seeks the kind of entitlement reforms that Rep. Paul Ryan, the retiring Speaker of the House, has longed to bring to America in general. The House had the opportunity to attach strong, conservative amendments to this bill, yet failed to do so, resulting in a tanked farm bill. The House plans seven weeks, and the Senate eight weeks, of work before the August break. The contentious animosity alarming Republicans who are spearheading into midterm elections this fall became a public debate when a brawl among moderates, hard-line conservatives and House leaders regarding immigration and welfare policy descend the party's multiyear farm bill.

"It was all about timing and leverage". Representative Drew Ferguson spoke with News 3 about the potential of the bill he believed was on it's way to passing.

We think that it's important that we have a vote on Goodlatte and at this point, we're not able to convince any of our members to go from no to yes on the Farm bill and so we will have further discussions leadership, but at this point, there is no deal. "We had enough members that were willing to vote for the farm bill, that like the farm bill, but a small group that wanted to extract some direct pledge on immigration that we could not simply fulfil under their timeframe, which is really a great disappointment that they would vote against a policy that they professed to support in order to get something immediate that was not in our legislative capacity", McHenry, R-North Carolina, said. "I personally was unhappy about it".
