Last week we were in Washington DC for a legislative meeting with the Alabama Farmers Federation. We met with Congressman Mike Rogers, heard from Congresswoman Roby, Senators Shelby and Sessions at breakfast and lunch. We also heard from leaders with the American Farm Bureau. One fact that was given that shows our country is headed down the wrong path was, "75% of the Farm Bill is nutrition and only 25% is farm programs". Sad, sad.
We were able to see some of the things we wanted to but have never been through so much security in all our life. Washington DC is an expensive place to eat and visit! We were glad when we could see Washington DC in our rear view mirrow! We are not planning to go back any time soon.
