Members of Missouri's Congressional delegation are weighing in on the U.S. House version of the Farm Bill, which could be voted on before week's end.
Democrats, including St. Louis Congressman William Lacy Clay, say the GOP-backed bill goes too far.
Clay calls the cuts "outrageous."
"The savings achieved are small when compared to the great human suffering this change would cause," Clay says. "This is targeting the least among us."
Clay says ending subsidies on sugar, corn and other crops would be a better way to save money on agriculture costs.
