More on End Hunger Now
Mr. Chairman, there are important parts of this Farm Bill that will impact Massachusetts and New England. The dairy, conservation, and specialty crop provisions are especially critical for the part of the country I represent and I strongly support full and robust dairy, conservation, and specialty crop provisions in the final conference report.

I ask unanimous consent to address the House for one minute.
The Republican Majority has drafted a bill that doubles the level of cuts to Food Stamps over what was included in the Farm Bill that failed to pass this House in June.
That’s right – doubles the cuts. More than 50 million people are hungry in this country. 17 million are kids. And the Republicans think cutting $40 billion from the most important program that prevents mass hunger in America is a good thing?

M. Speaker – eighteen times this year I’ve come to this floor and talked about the need to End Hunger Now. Eighteen times I’ve defended our nation’s anti-hunger programs, discussed the paradox of hunger and obesity, and talked about hunger among the elderly.

M. Speaker, I rise once again to address the House on the need to End Hunger Now.
This is the 14th time I’ve done so this year.
Next week, the Members of this House will return home to their districts for the 4th of July District Work Period. There will be parades and fireworks and picnics for all of us, but for too many of our neighbors, there will be no such festivities.
They will be too busy working two or three jobs just to make ends meet.
