Senator Ben Nelson Criticizes U.S. House

Nebraska U.S. Senator Ben Nelson is harshly criticizing members of the U.S. House for leaving Washington for the month of August without approving a farm bill. Nelson says House Republican leadership failed to act because it wanted to appease its Tea Party members. Nelson says he is pleased the Obama Administration has approved disaster assistance, but says it is not enough, calling it “a band-aid on a big rash.”
